Dan Warburton: violin. Recorded on March 3rd, 2007 by Christophe Le Dantec at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris. 'Music for Plants' was an installation by Berkeley-born artist Peter Coffin which formed part of an exhibition curated by Anthony Huberman at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris, in February and March 2007. 'Several musicians, including Noël Akchoté, Hervé Boghossian, Pierre-Yves Macé, Jean-François Pauvros and myself, were invited to play a solo set in Coffin's greenhouse, to entertain visitors to the gallery and amuse the plants. To the best of my knowledge, no scientific studies were carried out in the aftermath of the exhibition to see exactly what effect the music had on them (the plants, I mean). I'd be curious to learn of the existence of any strange deformities that might result from overexposure to difficult new music, as I've often wondered what lasting damage I'm doing to myself. Perhaps you could do some fieldwork of your own by setting up a cd player in your greenhouse and putting this disc on repeat play for a few months. But be careful. Remember The Day Of The Triffids.'
