IN TUNE WITH NATURE
Can plants sing? Sure they can!
Humans have often looked to nature for inspiration – for science, technology, and even the arts. In collaboration with the Munich natural history museum BIOTOPIA, we have set out on a musical experiment to explore the fascinating connection between nature, science, and technology. Listen and wonder!
PLANTS IN CONCERT
Watch Karel Hacker making music by capturing the electrical impulses that plants generate in the process of photosynthesis. For BIOTOPIA festival “Sense” 2022, Karel created the song “Primordial Connection” by playing with nature on a sunny August day in Botanical Garden Munich-Nymphenburg.
“Primordial Connection” by Karel Hacker
Inspired by Nature since 1668
Not only the arts take inspiration from nature: dive into scientific breakthroughs our company is pursuing, and marvel at the creativity of nature.
