When You Put Tree Rings on a Record Player, The Sound Is Unexpectedly Beautiful
Have you ever been curious as to what a tree sounds like? Look no further, the answer is here.
Bartholomaus Traubeck has created something unique that translate tree rings into music by playing them on a record player. As oppose to using the needle to play the record, sensors work gathering information about the wood’s colour and texture. Then some kind of algorithm translate the variations into piano notes.
Each individual tree delivers a different sound. The album, entitled “Years,” features spruce, ash, oak, maple, alder, walnut, and beech trees.
Give it a listen and let us know what you think.
