The first time Tigrilla heard the Music of the Plants, she didn’t believe what she was hearing. Like many people, she thought it was some automatic response where you took the biological functions of plants and made them audible. But as she listened, her musical training kicked in. She realized that she was not listening to random notes. Instead, she was hearing a sophisticated composition created by an intelligent being.
As a formally trained music and electrical engineer, musician, and performing artist, it is obvious that the Music of the Plants device—a musical instrument for plants that distinguishes electromagnetic variations between the leaf and the root system of a plant and turns that into music, allowing plant musicians to express themselves creatively—would become her main research tool, but it is not the only one. The growing body of scientific research around plant intelligence and new understandings of biophilia combined with this instrument allow nature to communicate with us in a new and startling way. This opens doors for further advances in plant communication. As technology improves, we understand and experience the complexity of the world that exists beyond our five senses.

Music of the Plants gives humankind a new way to connect with nature. With the device, plants and trees become master musicians and compose music for the human realm. As a result, the veil of plant blindness preventing us from recognizing these magnificent beings is thinning. Tigrilla seeks to re-establish our biophilic connections, bringing humans and plants together once again. By bringing plant music into public settings and educating the public about this developing field, she encourages a greater connection to nature. And as a consequence, the creation of a more sustainable and tolerant society.
Through years of research and experimentation, Tigrilla has learned that plants have many hidden talents. And through music, they can pass to the human world their knowledge, healing abilities and experiences. Plant music has been shown to have many benefits, including but not limited to:
- accelerated healing in rehabilitation clinics
- enhancing work by healers
- improved blood circulation and less coagulation
- higher cognitive status of coma patients
- positive results to both medical and emotional recovery.
Most noteworthy, the work of Jean Thoby of France shows that plants create healing plant music with specific amino acid chains to aid a single patient.
Research and Experimentation
It is vitally important that we encourage and fund this research. We must bring together researchers, doctors, and healers to compare notes and devise studies around plant music. Tigrilla is dedicated to just that.
As an international speaker on the effects of plant music, she has met with hundreds of people actively looking into the healing power of plant music and interspecies communication. She dreams of a yearly symposium where plant music research and interspecies art are shared. Because this knowledge benefits society as a whole: lifting the veil on plant blindness, and consequently, changing our relationship to the environment.
Deep connection with nature and co-creation with the plant world is essential for happy, healthy and sustainable living.
