You may have heard about the turntable that “plays” the rings of trees. Cut a log crosswise and you see something that could be record grooves. An artist/geek/engineer/programmer named Bartholomaus Traubeck has figured out a way to translate those rings–their arrangement and texture–into music.
Yes, there’s a bunch of software that works into this, but each tree cross-section has its own unique sound. Curious? I thought so. (Via Tom and Viralnova)
