Sounding Tree

Karl Heinz Jeron • 2018

Sounding Tree is a sound installation comprising only custom electronic oscillators. Wherever electric current exists, a magnetic field is also induced. Like any living organism, trees utilize electric current to power their own biological functions, generating weak magnetic fields. This installation makes use of a noncontact method for measuring electric fields for the sonification of a tree on the silent green premises – the audience will experience the metabolism of the tree as music and sound.
