Sonic Artist Mileece Showcases the Exquisite Sounds of Plants
Motherboard has a feature on sonic artist and environmental designer, Mileece, who uses bio-electric feedback from plants to create electronic soundscapes.
Channeling a plant’s sentience into an instrument is no obvious feat. With an audiophile background as a programmer, Mileece effectively turns a garden into an organic medium for music. She pulls this off by attaching electrodes to leafy limbs, which conduct the bio-electric emissions coming off living plants. The micro-voltage then gets sucked into Mileece’s proprietary software, turning data into ambient melodies and harmonic frequencies.
