I thought this belonged on the music blog: Bartholomaus Traubeck's 'Years' is a record player that plays slices of wood. It scans tree cross-sections and produces different sounds based on the wood grain (its thickness, darkness, frequency of rings etc.) creating a different song per tree. I think somebody mentioned doing their project on the relationship between the natural and digital, this might be of relevance. Otherwise, it's just quite a weird and beautiful thing! Also helpful on the idea of materiality - music as intangible digital files vs. music in its physical form.
