Ask A Philosophical Question

And another one shall be answered! Yesterday, I reported on my discovery that chickens do, in fact, cross the road to get to the other side. Today's question: If a tree falls in the forest, is sliced up into LP-sized discs, placed on a specially modified turntable, and analyzed with a computer that turns the data from its growth rings into piano notes, does it make a sound?

Yes!

Check out the result here.

Apparently, the sound that such a tree makes is kind of 1980s Steve-Reich-minimalist. Who knew?
