Data Garden creates immersive experiences through music and technology. They connect people to wonder through interactive works that encourage exploration and discovery. Begun as a record label releasing downloadable album codes printed on plantable seed paper, Data Garden has become a worldwide public art project building community and connection to living plants through art. 

Midi Sprout is a product of Data Garden which allows sound media artists to use plants and other living things to control audio and video synthesizers in real time.

On May 6, you can listen to Joe Patitucci of Data Garden speak on the project at the Recording session between 9 am and 10:15 am and On May 7, you can drop by Tory 1-105 during the lunch break (11:45 – 12:30) to listen to plants’ music and interact with the plants and listen to the music of interaction.

You can listen to one of Joe Patitucci’s works with MIDI Sprout here
