Bartholomäus Traubeck wondered what story those trees would tell. So he created equipment that could translate those rings into music on a record player. But instead of a needle, sensors read the wood’s color and texture. Then, algorithms convert those variations into notes on a scale, which is mapped to a piano synthesizer and played.

Someone had a similar idea back in 1977!
