The Immigrant Garden audio CD questions the plants as mute and senseless beings without any feelings. At the same time, the sound pieces literally transmit signals of radical otherness.
All the pieces on the CD are based on audio material recorded directly form plants. The recording method used was developed by Jagadish Bose in India in the ’20s-’30s and Ivan Gunar in the Soviet Union in the ’60s-’70s, who explored techniques of measuring the electrophysiology of plants. As a result, a sonic equivalent of a kirlian photograph is recorded, a kind of sonic aura.
The CD can be ordered from Helmilevyt.
