Plant Music I (2023)
Plant Music is a project in which I built an instrument that uses plants to create sound. It features sound effects and samples programmed onto an Arduino that's also reading data from the plants, as well as field recordings of birds, trees, and a stream taken across the Bay Area and Boston.
Plant Music was performed at Levi Lorenzo's Tech Forward show on April 4, 2023
