Experience 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.
About Music of the Plants
Since the 1970s, Damanhur—a resilient Federation of Communities with its own constitution, culture, art, music, currency, schools and uses of science and technology (www.damanhur.org)—has been researching communication with the plant world. As part of this research, they created instruments that are able to capture the electromagnetic variations of the surface of plant leaves and their root systems, and turn them into sounds and movement.
Scientists have long known that plant life communicates via pheromones and positioning. Music of the Plants has pushed this even further, deciphering and recording plant impulses and interactions through the development of a device that, when clipped onto a plant’s leaves and roots, reads electrical variations. These in turn are fed into a MIDI instrument and converted into music in real time, which varies based on the response of the plant to stimuli in the environment. Extensive research continues today as we become increasingly conscious of the innate ability of nature to communicate with us if we have the tools 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.

“I recently completed a project in a primary school in county Galway, Ireland, where I came in about once a week to teach a class of 27 six-year-old children about wild plants and trees. Each one of my visits lasted about three hours, during which the children got to know a particular wild plant, through[…]
Listen to plants create wondrous music of a Christmas Cactus and Majesty Palm duet recorded by Emerald Voices Music of the Trees in Canada. Leave us a comment with what you feel when you listen to the music of these plants!
This is a duet between the tobacco plant, Semah, and echinacea plant, Brigid from Anne Elliot in New Zealand. Although they live together, and no doubt communicate between each other, this is the first time they’ve been connected to Pan (Anne’s Music of the Plants device) and a second device so we can hear how[…]
An emerging duet with cellist Raeul Pierard and a young Kawakawa tree playing the Music of the Plants U1. What we are seeing is that with time, a musical rapport is possible between human and plant instrumentalists. This short clip exhibits the future possibilities of human musicians joining with plant musicians to create the most[…]
I had just connected my first young birch tree to the device and I was playing some cords. I found out a series of cords that the birch tree would easily follow. I was puzzling in my mind with songs I knew, trying to find out a song the tree would be able follow. Very[…]
When people discover that you can communicate with Plants, there are several common reactions. The first is denial, they think you are making it up. The second is awe. Sometimes the awe leads them to think that I have super powers and suddenly all must go well in my life. 🙂 Instead, communicating with[…]
We have listened to our plants play music for the last 14 months. Lone got the Music of The Plants CD produced at Damanhur as a birthday gift in August 2014. When we realized that the Music of the Plants was offered for sale, we bought one in January 2015, and started playing with potted plants in our home.[…]
Another magazine article about the Music of the Plants, this time in the Croatian magazine Astral. Camaleonte Olander, one of the original researchers on the project, talks about the history of plant music at Damanhur and how we should relate to the knowledge that plants can communicate. Should we, and how, change our relationship towards[…]
