    One for you, Frog!

    Mr Nayar, who is from Vancouver, Canada, has now revealed the method behind his whacky music career.


    To be more technical about what the musician does, the phenomenon is called biodata sonification, which essentially measures microcurrent fluctuations occurring across the surface of a plant.

    Mr Nayar hooks up the fungi to a modular synth to transform their bioelectrical signals into electronic music - and this tech can work on just about any living organism.

    Frog, I think that in your august position as Forums Moderator you should write to Mr. Nayar and invite him to join the equally august UBC Forums!
