Quantcast

It's common knowledge that tree rings provide insight to the Earth's history, but now they can also provide music.

Artist Bartholomaus Traubeck invented a record player that reads the texture and color variations of a cross section of a tree trunk and interprets them as music. Each tree has its own unique rings, and, therefore, its own unique song hidden inside, opening the door for a whole new music industry: tree music.

The music found in the tree trunks has a beautiful, almost classical air to it.
