Man Plays A Tree Like A Record Album

Subscribe to KLAQ El Paso on

Every tree has an interior set of “rings” that can be used to determine the trees age and also show events the tree has survived. Apparently, they make music too.

Artist Bartholomaus Traubeck has designed a record player that actually translates the texture and colors of these rings into musical notes. Since every tree has it’s own configuration of rings, sort of like a tree fingerprint, this also gives every tree it’s own song.

Dendrochronolgy is the study of tree rings and the information they contain. According to environmentalscience.org, other information found by studying tree rings includes:

  • Archaeology – for the purpose of dating materials and artefacts made from wood. When used in conjunction with other methods, tree rings can be used to plot events.
  • Chemists – Tree rings are the method by which radiocarbon dates are calibrated.
  • Climate Science – particularly in the field of palaeoclimatology where we can learn about the environmental conditions of the past, locally or globally, based on what the tree rings are telling us.
