Artist Bartholomaus Traubeck has created musical masterpieces, by playing trees. He created a record player that translates the different colors and textures of tree rings into music. Rather than use a needle like a record, sensors gather information about the wood and turn them into piano notes. Every tree sounds vastly unique due to varying characteristics of the rings, such as strength, thickness and rate of growth.
