mother earth’s plantasia

Before Giorgio Morodor, before Wendy Carlos, there was Mort Garson.  Mort was a deeply weird man, who trained at Juilliard, fought in WWII, then got his hands on one of the first Moog synthesizers, with which he did deeply weird things.  Here’s the title track, “Plantasia” from Mother Earth’s Plantasia: Warm Earth Music for Plants.  

It’s an album for plants.

And it’s a strange, soothing, wonderful album.  “Concerto for Philodendron and Pothos” would become the inspiration for the theme music to the original Legend of Zelda.  I recommend the whole thing, even if you aren’t a plant.

But especially if you’re a plant.
