Scientists Turn Trees Into Music

Posted by - 10:13 AM on 02/08/12
Scientists have created a turntable that reads tree rings like music on an LP.
From the ArticleGerman artist Bartholomäus Traubeck recently debuted a record-player he developed which is capable of digitally reading tree-slices and translating them into surprisingly moving piano music. Tree-rings, of course, considered to be annual records of a tree's growth rate -- which in turn offer clues to the hardships and fruitful periods experienced over the life of the tree.
