Tree trunk record player – Video

Music is indeed all around us, but I never thought a gorgeous piece of music could be found in a cross-section of a tree trunk.

Artist Bartholomaus Traubeck designed and built a record player that “reads” the texture and color variations of tree rings and interprets them as music. Because every tree has its own configuration of rings, every tree has its own song. By doing this, Traubeck has essentially created the infinite library of records. You must love the time we live in.

If you think Nature would sound like crackling and random noises, think again. This is actually beautiful.
