Tree Rings Make Beautiful Music. ~ Alicia Wozniak {Video}

Simply amazing.

I found this article and couldn’t believe what I heard when I played the video.

The age old question is, “If a tree falls in the woods and no one is around to hear it, does it still make a noise?” Well, of course it does, but who knew a tree’s rings, which resemble a vinyl record, could bring our hearts to beat a little faster.

Check out this video.

No, trees don’t sound like pianos.

The author of the original article explains the sound of the piano was used to interpret the vibrations picked up from the grooves of a tree rings.

Beautiful. Nature is beautiful.

Alicia Wozniak

Alicia Wozniak was born and raised in Cleveland. “Woz” now lives in Tampa, with the rest of Ohio. This 40 year old can be found teaching Zumba, all over Facebook, figuring out Twitterblogging, and working her full time gig in a marketing division of a textbook publisher. She wonders how many jobs she really needs. If she isn’t moving, she’s unconscious. Life, which includes a Weez, is good and as long as the beer is cold and it isn’t snowing, she’ll keep moving forward—Xanax close at hand.
