flower music garden

The Alchemy Farm Flower Music Garden Tour shares the music created from the bio-energy of the flowers themselves. The music you hear was not composed by environmental artist, Ingrid Koivukangas, the creator of the garden installation, she co-created the music with the plants using a device called, Music of the Plants.

What you are hearing is the bio-energy of the plants converted into musical notes—there has been no editing or enhancing tracks and any pauses in the tracks are the flowers themselves pausing during the recording process. Each flower has its own unique song! This virtual tour includes 15 Flower Songs out of over 60 that Ingrid has recorded from the over 120 different kinds of flowers we grow here at the farm.

During a garden tour at Alchemy Farm visitors use their phone or tablet to scan a QR code to listen to the music of the flower they are standing in front of—using technology to reconnect viewers to Nature.
