Verschueren, Bob – “Catalogue De Plantes” – [Fuga Libera]
I listened to this on a day where I only ate leeks, which was utterly fitting since every track on here is a study of the sounds made by vegetables such as carrots, maize, roses, cabbage, celery, various sorts of trees, and leeks! Verschueren started as a painter and moved on to art installations involving plants, which in turn led him to discovering the sounds that plants make. It’s quiet, but percussive, and absolutely fascinating. If you like this, you’ll also like the Vegetable Orchestra.
