LIVE MUSIC: PLANT AND HUMAN INTERSPECIES IMPROVISATIONS – Tim Wheater
Any music lover knows that when you listen to music, you hear the thoughts and feelings of the composer. If you have ever wanted to know what your plants are feeling, now is your chance!
Using a musical instrument made just for them- the Music of the Plants U1-local, plant musicians will play alongside human musicians in this one-of-a-kind interspecies concert.
By hearing the Music of the Plants, we recognize the sentience of the plant world and understand the sacrifices they make for our survival. Their songs reveal a language we can understand and play along with. Hearing plant music makes us realize that nature is filled with millions of living, breathing, thinking beings.
Tim will perform on the flute alongside a plant, this will be a very special and unique live music concert.
