Song of the Tree

Hmm I looked for it and found the link but it looks like they took down the entire 6 minute track.  What they did was convert the vibrations made by the rings in the tree into midi format and translate those as piano.  It sounds wickedly good.

I found a site with all of the songs. http://www.cpr.org/classical/blog/turntable-plays-tree-rings-instead-vinyl-grooves-how-did-he-do

 

 

I can't help but wondering though. Is the arm with the sensors moving in the same direction as one on a regular record player? I mean, from the edge of the disc towards the center? If so, this would play the song of the tree backwards, because the oldest rings are the innermost ones, in the center, and the outermost newer rings are the ones at the edge. Does this make sense or do I need coffee?
