Plants Making Music

I found this on Facebook and needed to more research to find out if & how this was true. What I found out was truly amazing & profoundly beautiful. I cannot be more grateful to Simone Vitale for bringing us this mind blowing information & music. Please visit his website to find out much more information on his approach to life.

How does the music of the plants work and more specifically does the sound in the recordings come directly from the pants?
The U1 device allows plants to produce sounds and to make music. It does so by measuring the electrical resistance of vegetable tissues and transducing it into a MIDI signal (Musical Instruments Digital Interface). The MIDI signal then controls a synthesizer that produces the actual sound.
At first, it might be difficult to assimilate the idea that, in the end, the music produced by the plant is not only an automatic outcome of this electrical connection, but also, a sort of “awareness” of the plant is involved. This is what the researchers in Damanhur (the developers of the U1 device) have found out in their forty years research. They say that after some time of being exposed to their own sounds, plants seem to become aware that the sound is coming from them and they start modulating it intentionally.
Simone Vitale witnessed this himself years ago, while rehearsing for a live performance. He found himself spending hours playing piano together with a plant and was witnessing the slow development of the process. The subtle changes in the plant’s music in response to the sound of the piano and its own sound was becoming more and more evident.

You can listen to over an hour’s worth of plant music here:

Music of the plants- Anthurium improvisation 432Hz

The music in the recording is actually being performed by a plant, Anthurium (anthurium andreanum), thanks to a specific electronic device mention above.

The plant is emitting signals in reaction to external stimuli and to communicate with everything. These signals are detectable as variations in the bio-electrical field of the plant and can be converted into a MIDI signal (Musical Instruments Digital Interface). The MIDI signal is sent into a synthesizer and programmed a soft, soothing sound tuned at 432 Hz.

After some time being connected to such device and producing sounds, plants seem to become aware of the process; they seem to understand that those sounds are coming from them… and they start playing with it.
