Pushing back on biosensing techniques to open up new ideas on plant intelligence and harmonics with latest data acquistion technology from the Laboratory of Plant Ecology, Ghent University Belgium. Plant Acoustic Emission data or AE data has never been recorded as audible sound, only numerical data. There are two sound systems in the work, both based on AE data and extruded into two time signatures. The first system plays thousands of events in humanised real time and the second system interprets the solar path where sound arcs in and out of the piece over 24 hours. The solar arc is significant in AE data. Activity lies nearly dormant during the night: solar altitude: zero degrees: builds as the sun rises to noon: solar altitude: ninety degrees: and subsides again as the earth spins about the axis.
