This project tries to convert capacitance changes in plants to sound. The idea is that by making these changes audible we can hear the plant react on its environment as if it’s communicating. They’ve chosen some great sounds so check it out.
Recently I decided to educate myself a little more on classical forms. I always felt a bit lost when I tried to compose something that was supposed to be a formal piece, realising that I was to unsure about what the rules actually were.
I discovered this video that is part of a series of Leonard Bernstein teaching us how to listen to classical music. The series on the sonata form is for kids and crystal clear (and a bit simple). It consists of four parts, so you can continue to the next part after finishing this one. I will soon post some other episodes of the same series. His introductions of composers are some of the best I’ve ever encountered. Enjoy!
