"Artist Bartholomaus Traubeck has custom-built a record player that is able to ‘play’ cross-sectional slices of tree trunks. The result is his artpiece ‘Years,’ an audio recording of tree rings being read by a computer and turned into music, much like a record player’s needle reads the grooves on an LP.
The tree rings are actually being translated into the language of music, rather than sounding musical in and of themselves. The song varies with each new piece of wood placed on the turntable.”
THIS IS INCREDIBLE
