Discovering the voice of trees

Found this on the web, and it's fascinating.

Bartholomaus Traubeck, a sound engineer and artist who had this genius idea to use the trunks of trees as a vinyl to play music.
Could this be the true music of nature? I want to believe it is, and if so.... this is hauntingly melodious, a beautiful amalgamation of nature and technology.

This is a piece from the project called 'Years', where he has used the trunks of different trees like Oak, Walnut and Beech.
I think this one is called 'Ash'.
