Crestone, CO, November 24, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Grammy® Award-winning musician Peter May has captured the sounds of singing Colorado wildflowers in his new LP release “Spreading Like Wildflowers.”
May, of Crestone, Colorado, used a MIDI/synthesizer known as a Damanhur Music of the Plants device to detect bioelectric current variations and convert them to sounds audible and recognizable to the human ear, putting this CD into the genre of Biomusic.
Vibrational frequencies given off by plants have recently been the subject of TED talks, the focus of studies by physics departments at major universities, and even been featured on the television series “Planet Earth.”
This CD reveals through music the hidden vibratory patterns being emitted by wildflowers.
In this LP, May recorded the electrical currents given off by popular Colorado native wildflowers — including the state flower Columbine — as well as fireweed, scarlet gilia, arnica, woods rose, purple penstamen, lupine and others. Also appearing on some of the tracks are the natural songs of bluebird, hummingbird, owl, red-winged blackbird, Western tanager, and Abert’s squirrel.
May previously performed on and co-produced the 2008 Grammy® Award-winning album “Crestone” by the Paul Winter Consort.
“Spreading Like Wildflowers” is the first known published recording to showcase singing wildflowers. There is very limited human influence on the tracks. As this work evolves to include human music, it is anticipated this will help establish a new genre of Biomusic, known as Nature Fusion.
The CD is available now at The Sonic Apothecary, Bandcamp, and cueing up at iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, and other digital retailers. TheSonicApothecary.com
