What you are going to hear is an extract from the album “Years” by Bartholomäus Traubeck. This work contains seven recordings based on old rings, and their characteristics as strength, thickness and growth of various trees, including oak, maple, walnut and beech are included.

Using an electronic process rings were translated into musical language. The method includes a modified turntable, a computer with Ableton Live (responsible for synthesizing the sound sequences and record the melodies program) and a PlayStation Eye camera that recognizes the grooves.

The result is various harmonic tones a bit haphazard but not entirely inconsistent.
