This Haunting Song Is Actually Tree Rings Being Played Like A Record
Yup, this proves nature is perfect.
"A tree's year rings are analysed for their strength, thickness and rate of growth," writes Traubeck on his website. "This data serves as basis for a generative process that outputs piano music. It is mapped to a scale which is again defined by the overall appearance of the wood (ranging from dark to light and from strong texture to light texture). The foundation for the music is certainly found in the defined ruleset of programming and hardware setup, but the data acquired from every tree interprets this ruleset very differently."
