Helping plants find their voices. I use a diy MIDI Sprout to convert biofeedback from plants into digital instrument control data and then design instruments around their own unique rhythm and melodies. I sometimes play with the plants as they react to touch, sound, light, and the general environment. I also love just plugging them in and listening to the natural progression of their sound.
On the main page you will find some of my favorite recordings that I have made from my plants using a range of different techniques.
- Single plant real time is a single plant recorded in real time, maybe I am playing with it, maybe not.
- Single plant compressed drones are generated from collecting data over a longer period and compressing that into a short time frame to create fluctuating drones that give some sense of the natural shift in sound over longer periods.
- Quintets real time are recordings of five plants generating sound together in the same time and space.
