Years

In 2011 Bartholomäus Traubeck, a German artist, created the Years exhibit. Featuring a modified turntable consisting of a camera, it translates the tree rings digitally into music.

“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.”

A digital album consisting of seven different recorded trees can be downloaded here.
