Wood-Translated Musicals
'Years' Project by Bartholomäus Traubeck Reads Music From Log Slices

The question of what kind of sound is made by a falling tree in a forest has fueled much debate over time, but the ‘Years’ project by Bartholomäus Traubeck may put an end to it all. The project involves taking slices of wood and placing them upon a specifically manufactured record player that will interpret the rings on the slabs of wood into music.

The grooves in the slices of wood are read by a turntable system that uses a PlayStation Eye Camera and a computer software called ‘Ableton Live.’ The user can present the musical instrument that they would like to use; the Years project films the turntable converting the wood into piano music.

So, if a musically capable tree was to fall to in a forest and nobody was able to hear it, would it make a sound?
