4 chaps from Liverpool should have known better but are singing a rather well-known song of theirs:




My vague wording is of course meant to protect from "this video is not available in your country".

Not a music video, but definitely worth a listen.

I describe it on my music blog as...

Quote
If you set the controls for the heart of Peru, started chopping through the Earth (careful with that axe!), beginning in the highest mountain and kept chopping till you came out in Pompeii, in the year of 1972, let the Echoes flow through the Earth, from the past to the present, you'd have to call it Hacia Aquellos Bosques de Inmensidad, (meaning ''Toward those woods of immensity''),  a 4 track EP album, by Montibus Communitas.

Here's this week's winner for me - I had no idea the BeeGees had an "early" period! It's also a unnerving mix of the lyrics and the overall tone.

BeeGees "I Started a Joke".

My GF found this one in [in a  write-up over at a rather odd (to my mind) site. Link here.

Quote
One other fascinating laboratory that studies plant vibrational energies is Damanhur, an intentional community in Italy. In this peaceful and spiritual ecovillage there is a laboratory in the woods that offers a beautiful choir of singing trees. Yeah, you read that right... singing trees. Since 1976, researchers at Damanhur have invented and developed equipment that can capture electromagnetic changes on the surface of leaves and roots, transforming them into actual sounds. The best part is, these trees seem to control their electrical responses via a feedback mechanism, and demonstrate a kind of awareness and preference for types of music. The singing plants and trees of Damanhur have sparked off such a worldwide fascination that the people began organizing “Plant Concerts”, where musicians perform to the music created by the trees.

Watch this 15-minute video of a beautiful demonstration singing plants while one of Damanhur’s researchers explain the phenomenon.

From what I've seen, I can't 100% buy into the conclusions these folks are reaching since I've heard many other musical sequences generated by natural phenomena or random processes that the human mind tends to interpret as conscious musical composition.  (ex: see Charles Dodge's album Earth's Magnetic Field (1970) for one well known example.)

That said, the music is quite beautiful regardless of whether the claims of "plant consciousness" being made in the video are scientifically valid or not. Give it a listen and see what you think:

great mix here lately :up:

@TaoPhoenix my favourite older Bee Gees track is the very schmalzy "To Love Somebody"
http://www.youtube.c.../watch?v=ykU8iSKkJR0

@40hz, do you remember that book 'Supernature' - it claimed plants responded to people just *thinking* about cutting the plant. No idea if true. Would be interesting to see the same experiment (as in the video!) tried with humans or other animals.

Finally,
I came across this video by serendipity - the way the keys are shown seems to tie in with my last two days work, trying to display information *meaningfully* in bar charts. Music takes a moment to start:



variation here (non-fading bars)

he's got a whole bunch more of very interesting visual "presentations" of music.

@tomos - indeed I do remember that book. I had several friends who were big Lyall Watson fans. They were also into the whole Findhorn community thing plus some other stuff I've since forgotten about. Their current fav is What the Bleep do We know? video - which they believe lock stock and barrel.

I'm not disputing there may well be plant 'intelligence.' But I also think:

     (a) it hasn't been conclusively 'proven' one way or another

     (b) a lot of what is ultimately 'proven' will depend on what you accept as 'intelligence.'

I'd personally like it to be true. But not so much that I'm willing to accept it on faith as most people I hear advocating for it do.

Just because something "seems to be" doesn't mean it is. Same goes for "looks like" or "is virtually identical to" or "behaves in much the same manner as."

From what I can gather, their devices are measuring changes in galvanic response which are then converted to midi data and passed to a very nice synth module. It's a pretty big leap going from that to calling it "communicating" in my book. But maybe that's just me. :mrgreen:

Truth is, whenever you're using one of those 'celestial' sounding 'pad' patches, it's going to sound pretty good. You can turn a two year old kid loose on one of those settings (I have btw) and what comes out will sound very musical in most cases.
 ;)

Saruman makes heavy metal music.  Your argument is invalid.

I am not sure, but it seems like a parody or satire of modern music. Personally I prefer TommyVFs remix/cover of it (The video is also pretty good)

I propose a video with Tab Benoit e Janiva Magness, where Janiva Magness plays a curious instrument...

This next isn't a video. It's a trailer for The Invisible Lighthouse - an interactive movie/solo-performance by Thomas Dolby. Currently touring the USA October 2013. Info on locations and dates here.



I saw Dolby perform live some years ago and was totally blown away by the blend of fine music wedded to absolute technical sophistication. This gentleman is definitely worth seeing of you get the chance.

Getting back more firmly on topic, here's the EP single of Ocenea, a haunting song which figures in The Invisible Lighthouse.



And for those who wonder just how well Tom Dolby could handle what he does solo in a live venue, here's a live solo performance of Europa and the Pirate Twins to give you some idea of what you can expect.
