Damanhur, an eco-society based on ethical and spiritual values, has centers and activities in Italy, Europe, Japan and the United States. They are experimenting with plants and generating music from them.
Damanhur collaborates with international organizations engaged in the social, civic and spiritual development of the planet and has been awarded by an agency of the United Nations as a model for a sustainable future.
The Federation was founded in 1975 and has approximately 1,000 citizens and over 500 hectares of territory throughout Valchiusella and the the Alto Canavese area, at the foothills of the Piedmont Alps.
For 30 years, Damanhur has been experimenting with plants to find out if they are intelligent beings. They say that plants can pick up the emotions of people and react to these emotions. It has always been said that talking to your plants is a good idea and this now seems to prove this. They say that the plants enjoy listening to music and can then make their own.
By attaching electrodes to the plants, the music is generated. Damanhur now offers concerts with the beautiful music generated by plants and trees.
