When Plants Sing
by Adam Michael Krause
Writings and Recordings Concerning Plant Bioacoustics and the Importance of Not Anthropomorphizing
7” record with an essay on plant bioacoustics. The roots of corn seedlings produce clicks and pops in response to frequencies between 200 and 300 Hz. What does that sound like? What does it mean? Includes two recordings of corn responding to sound, plus an essay exploring plants and sound (and no, plants don't actually prefer classical music), the state of our soil, and why we shouldn’t pretend plants are people just because they can do stuff like this.
