Recently for my birthday, a dear friend sent me a link to some Plant music from Gary Cook. I listened to it and thought ‘Wow! How did they do that?’ He has captured the music using a device available from Music of the Plants. He has a series of recordings available for purchase on his site that are sounds from the forest in New Zealand. I was fascinated and off on a learning journey!
How Does it Work?
This video by Simone Vitale is an explanation of how the sound is captured and makes music.
Listen for Yourself!
Music of the plants is where you can find the actual instrument that makes the music. A new version is to be released soon that will be a handheld device. I might have to invest in one! I would love to hear what the palm trees and cactus plants native to where I live in the desert sound like.
You can find more videos shared from people who have purchased the devices on the YouTube Channel, Music of the Plants!
They have even captured how plants respond to touch! How cool is that!
