So, you're putting microphones on the plants and you hear flutes?Updated a year ago

Not exactly. We are measuring slight fluctuations in the conductivity of the plant with electronic sensors, not microphones. And then we are graphing those fluctuations as waves, translating them into pitch and then sending those pitch messages into software with samples of instruments (like flutes, piano, etc.) So, no, a plant doesn't necessarily sound like a flute, but it can play a flute if given the right tools, specifically a PlantWave.
