I call myself a Sylvomusicist: I play with the music of Nature! Thanks to a box that transcribes the vibrations of the plant into sounds, I make the plants and trees I meet on my way sing, in beautiful places. I improvise with the plants, I accompany their music with my synthesizer, with my body (by dancing), with my voice (by singing, by telling stories)...
I like to experiment with different ways of connecting with Nature through this music! I realize that the more you are yourself, the more quickly you establish a connection with the plant that feels it and thus interacts with you! I find this musical co-creation with Nature fascinating!
A y heart to make people aware of the living through this music, I propose botanical conferences-concerts during which I present my different ways of connecting myself to plants, to trees, thanks to my passions. And then, I invite people to experience this connection by doing what they like! It is a kind of dance that will take place! They will respond to each other, and at a given moment, they are in the same space of consciousness, the harmony between the two is made! Nature is only waiting for this: the connection with man to allow him to connect to his own nature! And there, it is a magic moment... You have to live it to understand the inexplicable! And I think it's great that science combined with the arts can make us aware of the living of Nature which interacts with the living in us!
To carry out these different connection experiments, I have a device, the U1 device, manufactured by the Damanhur community in Italy, and redistributed in France by Jean Thoby. A nurseryman, he uses the music of plants to heal plants and humans. He has surrounded himself with a whole team of researchers to carry out experiments around this music. This box detects the electrical activity of plants with two electrodes (one at the root, the other at the leaf), and converts it into sounds. The plant can thus communicate and interact with its environment, thanks to the music well known to be a universal language. It is a well-founded technology that allows to make audible the vibrations of the plant in notes, in melody.
Using this scientifically tested tool, I like to co-create artistically with this music that makes people aware of the importance of reconnecting with Nature!
I'm really looking forward to the Maker Music Festival to share with you what I'm experimenting with and what I want to spread to the general public. In the meantime, I've put the link to a small report made by Isabelle Bourgeois, nomadic journalist for Joy for the planet. You will also find many videos on my You Tube channel Sylvie JOY.
Looking forward to this new experience!
