Experiment with the Music of the Plants
Permanent and Temporary Installations
When the public encounters a plant musician, they connect to nature in a way never before imagined. The realization that plants and trees can actually interact through music is both moving and sparks a new level of discussion about the consciousness of nature. By featuring Music of the Plants in an artistic or public installation, you will also be educating people on what is necessary to create a sustainable society.
Enhanced Wellness and Recovery
Science shows us that being around plants and trees, both indoors and outdoors, significantly improves our physical, mental and emotional well being. Doctors and holistic health practitioners alike are actively researching the effects of the Music of the Plants in numerous settings—including home, hospitals and the workplace—to better understand how plant music shortens recovery time and aids in overall healing.
Personal Contact with Plant Consciousness
Contact with plant intelligence provides deeper insight into ourselves and the world around us. Studies show that plants in homes and workplaces help to reduce stress, increase productivity, enhance employee attitudes, lower operating costs and improve air quality. A personal connection to nature inspires us to create a world where the environment doesn’t need protecting because it is an integral part of who and what we are.
Plants and Students: Friends for Life
Music of the Plants explores and illustrates the fundamental tenet that all life is connected. By providing a practical experience of plant intelligence, students from young to old can perceive the intricate relationships between humans and nature, ushering in a new era of respect for our environment. You will never forget the moment you are finally able to hear the invisible sounds of nature.
What is the Music of the Plants
Since the 1970s, Damanhur—a Federation of Communities with its own constitution, culture, art, music, currency, school and uses of science and technology (www.damanhur.org)—has researched communication with the plant world. As part of this research, they created an instrument able to perceive the electromagnetic variations from the surface of plant leaves to the root system and translated them into sound.
Science increasingly supports the concept that plants operate with an innate intelligence and logic diverse from our own. Music of the Plants has taken this research into plant intelligence and plant perception to another level. By deciphering and registering the impulses and interactions of plants, they have developed a device that uses a MIDI interface to transform the impedance from a leaf to the root system of a plant into music. Extensive research continues today as we become conscious of the innate ability of nature to communicate with us when we have the instrument to listen.

Plants perceive sound and love to play music.
This is demonstrated by studies and experiments conducted in academic research and, more importantly, by the experiences of many researchers and musicians who teach plants to use electronic, musical equipment to play and sing along with them.
The research into plant intelligence, plant sensitivity and the willingness of plants to communicate with us opens our minds and our hearts to a new vision of nature and to unprecedented opportunities to dialogue with the plant world... buy the book here.
