What would it sound like if you took a thin slice from a tree trunk and played it like a vinyl record? Would the tree rings work somehow like the grooves in a record?
In case this has been a burning question for you, you’ll be pleased to know that there are several YouTube videos showing a variety of “artistic” interpretations for “playing” a wood disc to hear the inherent melody within your backyard maple.
But I like this quirky video showing how the inner workings of a tree trunk were converted to sound by using an algorithm that measured the rings.
So now you know. You’re welcome.
