Plantasia (2019)

T.M. Glass researched the ways in which plants might “speak” and discovered a machine that translates a plant’s natural electromagnetic vibrations into sound via electrodes placed on the plant’s leaves. Bob Ezrin is a celebrated Canadian music producer and musician who has been inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and has worked with bands such as Lou Reed, Alice Cooper, Kiss, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, and Peter Gabriel. In his recording studio, Ezrin jammed with music produced by a pansy plant, resulting in a composition titled Duet with Pansy. Overtop, Glass has created a surreal expression of the language of flowers with time-lapse images of flowers blooming.
