A guide to the wonderful world of plant-generated music



If plants could talk, what would they say? Meet Nico Georis, a Californian musician who has spent two years deciphering the language of flora with technology that turns a plant’s biodata into music. LA-based director Maximilla Lukacs traveled to Georis’s studio cum greenhouse in Big Sur to document the making of his latest album, which features a tropical Monstera plant that he lovingly christened Shirley.

“Plants have something to tell us—especially at this moment in time when human beings are showing little respect for the natural world,” says Lukacs. “I hope that after seeing this film you will never look at plants in the same way.”
