Musical Scores Made from Tree Rings

April 13, 2012

German artist Bartholomaus Traubeck

A record player (the kind we used when I was growing up) was modified to be able to read the growth rings of a tree to create music. Bartholomaus Traubeck created what he calls Years to analyze the rings for their strength, thickness, and rate of growth. It transform this data and outputs it as music. You can read more, see photos, and hear music by clicking here.
