So what is plant music? Well, put very simply it is the vibrations of the plant translated into MIDI notes, then via a synthesizer you can choose an instrument and hear these vibes as musical notes.
I have a device which helps me do this, it measures small electrical currents across the surface of a plant’s leaf converting the fluctuations into MIDI notes. The first time I heard my orchid I was amazed, the Oak tree in the garden was even more than amazing you can hear it opposite.
I love those deep notes.
The music of the plants is rarely the same, each time I listen there are variations, just as our energy changes throughout the day so does the plants’ too, sometimes they are very quiet other times they’re very chatty. I have listened to the leaves in autumn a green one, a yellow one and a dry brown one, as you would expect they make different sounds, the surprising thing is that even the dry brown leaves which I didn’t expect to make any sound actually did.
The world around us is energy, we are energy, if we could only see the energy and how we interact with the world around us, particularly the plant world, then I believe we would be much more respectful of nature, of each other too.
Listening to the music of the plants is fascinating, and a way of bringing us closer to the world we live in and I m not talking about man-made things but that which was around long before we were – closer to nature, in the hope of learning from her what we once knew.
