A Little Tree Music

Bartholomäus Traubeck's Years piece tells us what trees sound like when they sing. Nature and technology and art and music meet and mix and make a haunting tune. Using a PlayStation Eye Camera and a stepper motor, a computer running Ableton Live reads the grain on the cross section of a tree trunk and converts it into music.

I love the idea of finding voices for those things around us we pretend are mute.
