This is a clip from the record Years, created by Bartholomäus Traubeck, which features 7 recordings from different Austrian trees, like Oak, Maple and Walnut.

This clip is an Ash tree's year ring data. This record player uses a PlayStation Eye Camera and a stepper motor attached to it's control arm. It feeds the data to a computer with Ableton Live, which gives us an incredible piano track.
