Plants That Play by Robert Jarvis

This event explores the hidden music in plants and vegetables. Come and visit this experimental listening station which aims to tune into the bioelectrogenic life of all things vegetable. Using a combination of specially designed hardware and computer software, the tiny electrical responses resulting from the cellular processes within different plants will be tuned into, amplified, and used to trigger their own musical signatures.

Have you ever wondered what your houseplant might actually be saying to you? Bring your plant along, and find out! Robert will be working through a number of of plants and vegetables on the day to explore what music can be derived from them. Come along to experience this strange bio-acoustic world; or better still, book your own time slot and bring your own plant!
