Data Garden PlantWave - galvanic MIDI hardware 1st demo/experiments

video by SynthAddict

Little plant playing music.

"PlantWave converts measured plant (or any other organism's) galvanic resistance over time between 2 points to MIDI, like biofeedback devices (galvanic skin response in animals). Enjoy the experiments. A few synths were used in the demo.

I experiment with lights and wavelengths, as well as a simple impromptu chaotic jams at the end with a plant bandmate. :-)

The PlantWave mobile app has onboard synth presets & other features, but this demo is only for MIDI hardware.

Galvanic refers to Luigi Galvani, who was an 18th century physician, physicist, biologist and philosopher - considered the pioneer of bioelectromagnetics.
