Concept albums: Plant Music

Due to the isolation, I got some time to dive into a very specific musical concept, which is: plant music / music for plants etc., and I thought this could be a great list idea. Mostly this type of music combines a handful of genres, specifically: drone, ambient, electronic, noise etc. usually in an experimental aspect (and additionally field recordings are also very often used elements). I want to make this an evergrowing list, where I can dump the best / most interesting albums I find, and hope some of you may be interested as well. Cheers.

[Berlin-school electronics]
Probably the most well-known plant music album, 'Plantasia' is a simply brilliant Berlin-school synth masterpiece from 1976, and a timeless classic in my eye.
2Takatoshi Naitoh
In The Forest

[Ambient, Electronic, Field recordings]
This album masterfully blends together (old-school) uplifting, dreamy synths and field recordings into a dreamy and beautiful musical journey.

Shirley Shirley Shirley!

[Ambient, Drone]
Now this is a really outstanding experimental album: an album created from a plant's electrical biosignals converted into MIDI! This is an uplifting and mind-blowing experience, and the album has beautiful droney soundscapes and interesting melodies. An ethereal journey on nature's frequencies~
4Data Garden
Quartet: Live at The Philadelphia Museum of Art

[Ambient, Drone]
Exciting "plant-generated" experimental drone piece. Very elegant implementing, the album sounds gorgeous. 116 minutes of vibrating and ever-forming drone music, and I have to admit, that Schefflera plant on the bass synth did a fantastic job, haha! The only problem is that the two main tracks are a bit overlong and the composition gets a little bit samey after a while, maybe a few shorter tracks with different compositions could have been much better, but after all I can't really complain: this is art.

Music For Growing

[Ambient, Drone]
Another very pretty album. The constant, deep sine bass and the pulsating, ethereal pads together builds a calm and uplifting atmosphere... very hypnotic! And using wind bells as a percussion instrument is simply brilliant.
6Jan Grunfeld
Music for plants

[Ambient, Alt-rock]
Very pretty and relaxing, and outstandingly great for a fully improvised album. The light and ethereal ambiance is a great base and the fusion with the slightly alt rock-ish and experimental elements makes this release especially enjoyable. Maybe it is just me, but I think the last few songs are somewhat similar to the modern Ulver's sound, especially to the live jamming in ATGCLVLSSCAP, for example. This *should* exist in physical formats too!
7David Edren
Music For Mimosa Pudica & Codariocalyx

[Ambient, Electronic]
Great plant-insipred electronic release! Greatly dinamic, a very easy, enjoyable listen.
8Brendan Wells Plant Music
Music For People & Their Plants Vol 1

This wasn't really impressive (in my opinion), but maybe some of you will find this also interesting.
9Hiroshi Yoshimura

[Ambient, Electronic, Field recordings]
Great ambient/electronic piece, with pretty old-school synths and with a gentle touch of field recordings. Alltogether the album has a rather slower tempo, which makes it very pleasant for reading, studying, relaxing etc.

[Black metal, Post-rock]

Journey Through The Secret Life Of Plants

[Drone, Ambient]
Humble little drone piece, which greatly represents my overall taste in the genre. The light, spacey, dreamy tracks with minimal and pulsating textures make this a pleasant massage for the mind!
Six Songs for Invisible Gardens

[Ambient, Electronic]
It is good, but nothing really outstanding or noteworthy. A handful of chill ambient/electronic tracks about plants, but that's all.
