    I harness the electrical frequencies of plants and transcribe them into music
    Like any living being, plants emit a frequency and electrical waves. By attaching sensors to just one leaf and one root, the Device Box retransmits the captured waves into sounds. This generates very harmonious sounds which reveal the state of the plant’s well being. This music has also been studied for its health benefits for humans. The plant music conference-concerts aim to introduce people to the vegetal conscience, the most recent scientific discoveries on the subject and simply to let people listen to the beautiful harmonies composed by different plants. It encourages us to wonder about the cognitive abilities of plants and their ways of communicating with us.
