If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it really make a sound ?
An age old philosophical conundrum that perhaps we may never get to the bottom of, but if a tree falls in a forest and you slice it up into segments and play them on a record player ? Then yes, according to you have music.
Artist Bartholomäus Traubeck has successfully converted a record player to be able to interpret the growth rings from slices of tree trunks into a surreal eerie sounding piano music.
You can even buy the album, each track is a different tree, Spruce, Ash, Oak, Maple, Alder, Walnut, & Beech. Available from this link: http://traubeck.bandcamp.com/album/years
