Is this Steampunk?


I don't care.
 I'm posting it here anyway.

A record player that
plays music
from tree rings.





From actual tree rings.

Different species produce
different kinds of music.

  1. It's awesome regardless of what it happens to be classified as. And we all know awesome (specially when it plays music "from actual tree rings") fits anywhere.

  2. Fantastic, came via Magaly's, I wonder if flora/tree enthusiasts could recognise the tree by the tune??? If it isn't steam punk, it should be claimed as part of it :)

    1. Hi there, from Magaly's! If people can identify birds by song, why not trees? :) As for steampunk, just gussy the machine up with brass fittings and mahogany and then the idea of reading tree-rings with light waves sounds perfectly victorian.

    1. Thank you, Ann. I would like to hear a range of trees. Maybe parks could play treesong, very quietly...
