Tree Rings as music?


YEARS from Bartholomäus Traubeck on Vimeo.

Personally, I think I’m going to call this BS, or at the very least, taken with alot of artistic license.

It’s claimed that using a digital camera (a PS Eye of all things), and a computer, spinning a slice of wood on a record player, LP style, it creates this almost perfect piano.  Honestly, it’s just too perfect of a piano sound for me.  It’s interesting nonteheless, but I don’t think it’s 100% natural.  Hell, I don’t even think that there’s any reason to think that tree rings can or should produce music.  But who am I to say what’s art?
