Houseplants and indoor trees, tune in! Tracks to encourage growth and engender enjoyment in our photosynthesising friends, from Molly Roth, Mort Garson and Roger Roger.
Tell your houseplants and indoor trees to tune in tonight, for tracks to encourage growth and engender enjoyment in our photosynthesising friends.
Do not worry for the moment whether plants can hear, or if indeed what genre of music they like best. Just let Nick Luscombe lead you down the garden path towards an enclave of flowery, fruity, fertile sound, featuring: spoken word artist Molly Roth, the hit of the Transworld Home Horticulture Exhibit in Chicago, 1976; research project Folklore Tapes interpreting Flora Britannica, the matter of Britain; and psychedelic, electronic, green sounds from Mort Garson, Roger Roger, and David Eden.
There's also time to look at some of the grandest, busiest experimental events happening this August, with reference to the BBC Proms and the Edinburgh Festivals, and featuring tracks from Sharon Van Etten and SOPHIE.
