Here’s some stuff you won’t find in your pal’s cd collection, Pieces for Plants, an interactive sound installation for laptop, synthesizer, and the American semi-tropical climbing Philodendron.

From the site:

In the piece, a plant’s real-time responses to its physical environment are translated to sound. Highly sensitive electrodes are attached to the leaves of the plant. Scored movements by a human “plant player” stimulate physiological responses in the plant that are monitored via the electrodes and biofeedback wave analysis. The “plant player’s ” proximity, touch and interactions with the plant are then expressed in sound via midi and synthesizer. During the piece, the plant is brought to a range of physical/psychological states, from calm to agitation.
