Nature-lovers everywhere know there’s nothing like the music of nature. Now, Bartholomaus Traubeck has invented a new way to hear an incredible “song” of nature. He’s invented a record player that can “play” tree-rings, by translating the changes in texture and color into music. Because no two tree-rings are alike, no two songs are the same!
