Musica dagli alberi: Bartholomäus Traubeck, the German dj who plays the wood, in concert for the first time in Emilia-Romagna. Opificio Golinelli 5 December. Bologna – Transforming the tree’s year rings in music. Without a needle and any vinyl record, but with a microcamera and a software that translates the texture of a wooden disc in piano music. In this way, he built up an instrument able to read the year rings and translate them into piano sounds, letting alone the machine to construe trees and produce sounds and atmospheres.

Bartholomaeus Traubeck. Modified turntable, computer, camera, acrylic glass, veneer. Laboratoria Art & Science Space. Years’ is a modified turntable, playing thinly sliced, cross-cut sections of trees instead of records. It uses a camera, replacing the usual needle, as a pick-up. With this machine, a tree’s year rings are analysed for their strength, thickness and rate of growth.

Notes

A tree's year rings are analysed for their strength, thickness and rate of growth. This data serves as basis for a generative process that outputs piano music. It is mapped to a scale which is again defined by the overall appearance of the wood (ranging from dark to light and from strong texture to light texture). The foundation for the music is certainly found in the defined ruleset of programming and hardware setup, but the data acquired from every tree interprets this ruleset very differently.

This record features seven recordings from different Austrian trees. They were generated on the Years installation in Vienna, January 2012.
