Title: Late to the Party! OREGON ECLIPSE Juniper Experiment
Post by: spacedumpster on March 20, 2018, 07:42:21 PM
Hey, Sproutlings!

For your edification and amusement, I am thrilled to share a recording I made of a juniper bush atop a high desert bluff in Western Oregon during the total solar eclipse August 21, 2017.

The recording seems to indicate some fascinating behavior on the part of my performer. In the time I recorded leading up the start of the eclipse, and as the moon began to eclipse the sun, the plant would go through cycles of singing, followed by extended silences.

Our seven and a half minutes of totality began around 49:30 in the recording, at which point the cycles became much more extended, singing almost constantly with far fewer periods of silence. Totality ends somewhere around minute 57, at which point the plant begins to return to its periodic cycles.

The recording is presented unedited and unabridged.

I hope you find this piece as interesting as I do. :-*

I thank you for allowing us to participate on that beautiful event, to witness the plant's perspective expressed through it's music, which makes collecting Plants music so unique, as many unexpected things can happen during a season. :)

Much Love
Nicola
