Plant Music — with Marguerite Uhlmann-Bower

  • the Erpf Center 43355 New York 28 Arkville, NY, 12406 United States (map)

Marguerite Uhlmann-Bower will give a live demonstration on (what up until now) has been relegated to imagination and phenomena — an auditory translation of the electrical vibrations of plants — plant music. 

Through a synthesizer that is connected to a live plant, Uhlmann-Bower translates the plant's electrical impulses via a programmed collection of auditory samples. The sound experience is specific, unusual and mind-opening.

After the live demo there will be an open Q/A where perspectives of Native American Physics, Plant Neurobiology and Deep Ecology concepts will be discussed, including some of the unintended experiences Marguerite has been witness to.

Often, engaging conversations arise that beg us to consider just what is going on and then what often follows, 'where do we go from here?' 

Marguerite's presentation is $10. Pre-registration is required.

Marguerite Uhlmann-Bower, RNis a Clinical Herbalist, wild foods forager and teacher of herbal traditions, is co-founder of Plant Pioneers, a Human-Plant Relations Movement based in the Catskills of upstate New York. Her work invites people to become interested in plants through hands-on, outdoor Nature experiences that bridge herbal traditions, wild edibles, the tangible to intangible phenomena, space and form informing. She addresses both the needs of humans and Nature as one ecological system. In recent years additional tools of choice are Music of the Plants and Cymatics which assist the observer on a palpable human-plant level. Conversations are around implementing ‘creative restoration’ rather than ‘consuming’ to depletion. By honing one’s senses to remember the roots of our past, this offers hidden gifts that empower us in how to move forward to future. Marguerite’s belief is, as we integrate plants into our attention, we’ll eventually become beings of place and make the beneficial changes for future.

She is a member of the Society of Plant Signaling Behavior, United Plant Savers, Northeast Herb Association, Catskill Forest Association and Farm Catskill. Contact Marguerite to get involved, to schedule a walk, workshop or consult. 607-437-1218
