Desert Gold is Ace Hotel Palm Spring’s annual sun-drenched oasis during Coachella, a sonic detox of the senses, with poolside DJs, live bands, meditative sound baths, electric dream machines and wellness pop-ups from sunup to sundown.
Data Garden Quartet at Desert Gold
Presented in part by Moog, Data Garden & dublab.
The musical compositions in QUARTET are generated by the electronic impulses produced by four plants. This data, sourced using a MIDI controller for plants (MIDI Sprout), is translated into music designed to allow listeners to monitor subtle energetic activities in their environment.
So, what are the plants responding to? Well, that’s up for discovery. Plants are responding to stimuli both perceivable and unperceivable to humans. Many visitors have experienced shifts in plant music patterns in sync with thoughts, feelings, actions and intentions. Many notice they feel relaxed after spending time with musical plants.
We invite you to explore your own relationship with plants by feeling the music. Can you tune into the exchange?
