This is what it sounds like when you put tree rings on a record player. This is an excerpt from the record Years, created by Bartholomäus Traubeck, which features seven recordings from different Austrian trees including Oak, Maple, Walnut, and Beech. What you are hearing is an Ash tree’s year ring data. Every tree sounds vastly unique due to varying characteristics of the rings, such as strength, thickness and rate of growth. Keep in mind that the tree rings are being translated into the language of music, rather than sounding musical in and of themselves. Traubeck’s one-of-a-kind record player uses a PlayStation Eye Camera and a stepper motor attached to its control arm. It relays the data to a computer with a program called Ableton Live.

Enter every schoolboy's nightmare From his Freaks and Geeks days to last year’s Palo Alto, memories of the awkwardness of high school have filtered through many of James Franco’s projects. The latest is this short, which opens the actor-turned-producer’s The Heyday of the Insensitive Bastards: a series of vignettes based on short stories by Robert Boswell. Directed by on-the-rise talent Mark Columbus, Guests tells a story of two pervasive forces of nature: the unrelenting bully who targets Charlie (Modern Family’s Rico Rodriguez), and the cancer that is killing his father (Matthew Modine). For Columbus, the film aims to capture the strange ways that memory works. “The way I imagine everything in my memory is always washed out and sun-dried, with details on the weirdest things,” he says. “Such as the little crevices on concrete walls, or dust particles floating in a still room.”
