Tree Rings Make Beautiful Music

The age old question is, “If a tree falls in the woods and no one is around to hear it, does it still make a noise?” Well, of course it does, but who knew a tree’s rings, which resemble a vinyl record, could bring our hearts to beat a little faster.

Really interesting usage of tree rings. That music is quite good.

WOW. How does this actually work? O_O (kind of reminds me of those singing plants at Damanhur I saw where they attached electrodes to a synth and the plants.)

'Years' Tree Turntable demonstration. Utilizing various make-shift components, German designer Bartholomäus Traubeck has managed to create a modified record player that takes wood slices of a tree and makes music from its inner rings.

Txantsan! :D

It's the surface's structure of the tree rings. :) A sensor 'read' the surface's stucture and transform it into audio signals.

... and it sounds EXACTLY like a Piano / piano synth? for some reason I have doubt. Maybe it takes the signals and passes them through a synth, like they did with those living plants here:



Either way, totally cool and really beautiful. :D

Instead of a record player needle, a modified camera is analyzing the tree rings for their thickness, the space between rings and other factors.

It sends that data over to Ableton Live audio production software, where it's turned into the piano notes we hear.

As for the singing plants, it's also a sensor that record (in that case) the bioelectric impulses of the plants and a synthesizer transform them into hearable audio.

Generally the same thing was used to make planets hearable like this:

In this case, they recorded the interaction of the electromagnetic particles of the solar wind and jupiter's atmosphere.
