tree ring music

what it is: tree ring music
where i found it: the "i fucking love science" site

So THIS is an album comprised of slices of trees (walnut, pine, ash, etc.) spun on a turntable, the dynamics and rhythms being translated into piano sounds, which reminds me that most instruments are made of dead trees, as are floors and tables and chairs and cabinets and baseball bats. Don't trees have any rights?
