Hold a pinecone really gently and your interface with it
become a dance where you hear the quiet pinecone
crackely sound interface with the background noise and
connect that sound with the feeling of gently moving in
natural body rhthms.
You could record this crackely sound and then
to the point where the high pitches of each crackel are
reduced to human voice range and then optimized for
human hearing. It might sound like one of those youtube
videos of glass breaking in slow motion. it sounds like a
beautiful aeleatoric marimba symphony.
Since there is math in the pinecone spirals you might
when you slow it down and elongate the notes that the
rhythms of your skin interfacing with the fronds of the
pincone has a mathematical music to it.
Actually wow it sounds terrible
||Is this one of those pinecones that shoots its seeds out with enough force to give somebody a good smack upside the head ?
||You know what? I bet every individual... (hold on I have to look up the word)... pinecone scale has a slightly different tone, and that a device could be contrived allowing a person to use one to play music.
||So (+) Gnarfle the Garthog!
||Does this idea prove that a random number generator now out-performs LSD as an idea generator ?
