Rings on a tree can give information about the age of the tree, as well as indicate environmental conditions such as rain levels, disease, and even forest fire. Light colored rings indicate quick growth, while darker rings indicate times when the tree did not grow as quickly. Slices of trees are not uniform, and they all tell a story about the tree’s history.

Bartholomäus Traubeck created equipment that would translate tree rings into music by playing them on a turntable. Rather than use a needle like a record, sensors gather information about the wood’s color and texture and use an algorithm that translates variations into piano notes. The breadth of variation between individual trees results in a individualized tune.

We have two red-eared slider turtles in a 55 gallon aquarium, they are like our children, 8 years old now. They eat out of our hands, and go crazy swimming when they see one of us by the tank.

Ours look kinda like this, they are mature so they are not that Florescent green anymore

I thought we would hear the sounds of birds singing and rain falling and wood fairies singing and chainsaws buzzing?!

I wonder what the numerous wounds and scars upon my body would sound like when played like a record?!

Cars crashing into trees and sledge hammers pounding on feet and ex girl friends screaming at me?!
