We all know that you can tell how old a tree is by counting the rings inside its trunk. But Munich-born artist Bartholom√§us Traubeck has taken this practice several steps further, creating a one-of-a-kind record player that analyzes the rings’ strength, thickness and rate of growth, converting that data into piano music. Talk about natural musical ability!
