Arabidopsis Symphony

The hidden dynamics of an ordinary plant sprouts in a multi-layered composition


Arabidopsis Symphony



Arabidopsis Symphony explores the capabilities of plants to make music. A plant orchestra created by translating growth data into sound. 

The composition is based on the inner world of plants: the hormonal balance that is being monitored. By using this data and translating it into music, the feeling of the plant world is translated into a tangible form, instead of measuring or describing it.
