Just for comparison:  In the USA, assuming installation in a 
pre-existing square or rectangular tower, I've found only one chime 
in a diagonal frame.  And I got such a brief look at it that I 
couldn't even determine why it was done that way.

On the other hand, I've seen a number of installations where a chime 
frame was installed on a structural base of I-beams set on belfry 
window sills.

I can't think of any carillon (traditional or non-traditional) that 
fits either of those descriptions.
