Bartholomäus TRAUBECK [Germany]


Years is a modified record player that reads a tree’s year rings with a special camera mounted on a tonearm. The found data serves as the basis for a generative process that outputs piano music via a computer. The discs can be switched to experience compositions derived from different types of trees like maple, fir, walnut, oak and others.
