Tree Music

Thin slices of tree translated into piano sounds by a camera on a stylus. Key signature by algorithm. The composer says the music is 50% him, 50% tree--a nicely Romantic balance, as is his choice of piano...

I have to admit to preferring turntablists such as Phillip Jeck, Otomo Yoshihide and a few others, perhaps the art collective Project Dark who would rather just stick the slice of tree on the turntable and play that. Sod the algorithms (or algorhythms). :-)
