Plant Music Research and Interspecies Art

Encounters with the Music of the Plants are showing that plants can pass to the human world their knowledge, healing and experience. Plant music has been shown to have a wide-range of benefits in humans, including but not limited to: accelerated healing in rehabilitation clinics, enhancing the work of holistic health practitioners, improved blood circulation and less coagulation, and positive results to both medical and emotional recovery.

Today, there is not yet enough documented research as to the effects of plant music on human health or opportunities for public interspecies art and performance. Anecdotal evidence and small research projects show incredible promise, and for this reason it is vitally important that we encourage and fund this research, bringing together researchers, doctors, healers, musicians, etc. to compare notes and devise programs.

To encourage collaboration, there is a Facebook Group called the “Effects of Plant Music on Human Health and Interspecies Art” open to anyone interested. If you are interested in the area of research, please join and share your stories!
