"In this plant music experiment I try to see if the plants song changes from night to day. Using the MIDI Sprout, a Colocasia plant plays the piano and Arturia B-3 organ at midnight and then again the next morning. Can you hear a difference? I can but it’s subtle."

"In this video I connect the MIDI Sprout to a Philodendron ‘Congo Rojo’ and let it play the Ekdahl Knas Polygamist synthesizer and Arturia’s B-3 V Virtual Hammond Organ. Interjecting it’s noisey self into the mix is the Metasonix S-1000 Wretch machine, which is being “played” by the Polygamist via it’s pulse wave and gate outs. So, a plant is playing a
