Zepelim: Plant Consciousness & Communication

Zepelim: Plant Consciousness & Communication – Carlo António Ribeiro Patrão

This sound collage aims to visit the fringe world of plant consciousness and communication along with its peculiar relationship with music, featuring plant-based generative music, music to grow plants by, music using plants as instruments, music inspired by plants, and audio evidence of electrical signalling in plants that supports theories of plant consciousness.

Carlo António Ribeiro Patrão has been working in radio since becoming a member of the freeform independent radio station Rádio Universidade de Coimbra (RUC) in 2007, where he began to explore the diverse possibilities of radiophonic space through the use of field recordings, experimental music, musique concrete, drones, archived sound and live improvisation.
