Modular Synth Jam with 4 Houseplants

Synthesist Bryan Noll (Lightbath) shared this live performance, from the Plant Music Lounge at South By Southwest (SXSW).

What Noll has to say about the performance:

“Revisit my immersive PlantWave performance at SXSW 2023, where I used real-time plant biodata to animate carefully designed musical systems in my modular synthesizer and computer.

Held in Data Garden’s Plant Music Lounge, this concert of guided generative music was an interspecies collaboration between myself and four houseplants.”

The Plant Music Lounge was a project of Plantwave, who make a device that translates signals from sensors that you can attach to plants into ambient music or MIDI signals.

The Lounge was intended to be a space where attendees could relax and recharge at SXSW.
