Other scientists are discovering that plants have similar senses to ours and that they “talk” to each other — not just through their roots, but as we do: through the air. They release a special gas to warn their neighbors of any danger.
For example, " when the first gypsy moth larvae landed on a mature oak tree that resided in a grove with other oaks. By analyzing the chemistry of the mature oak tree’s leaves, they were able to determine that within a very short period of time, the tree had added a bitter tannin to all of its leaves. The tannin made the tree an unattractive lunch option for the gypsy moth larvae. But what was more astounding was that all the other oak trees in the grove changed the chemistry of their leaves, too, making them unappetizing as well."
"A tree’s year rings are analysed for their strength, thickness and rate of growth. 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."- Bartholomaus Traubeck
And even more astonishing is that trees can produce music. One man placed microphones on trees and than took the recordings to a studio and amplified the sound. It turned out we were hearing symphonies.
Mozart saw music and then wrote it as a young man. It seems the music was there in the ether and he happened to be a worthy vessel for it. If all artists were like Mozart we would have truly beautiful and great art in the world and the intellectual birthing we now do not enjoy, that is conceptual art.
