Music for Plants, 2021 Edition

Music For Plants is a five day music and visual art event taking place at Kaisaniemi Botanic Garden in Helsinki during 1.-5.12. Coinciding with some of the darkest days in Finnish winter, the event creates a unique opportunity to feed plant power back into our psyches, enhancing the effect with light, video and sound art made purposefully for the plants and the different botanical rooms at this historical greenhouse.

Plant energy, visual art and ambient soundscapes for the alleviation of SADness at Kaisaniemi Botanic Garden

Plants and humans have co-existed for hundreds of thousands of years, quite literally breathing off of each other: they use our carbon dioxide, we use their oxygen. Music For Plants would like to invite you to meditate on this synergy between plants and humans through sound, light and video art.

Music for Plants, 2019 Edition

Soothing ambient music with light and video art in a rainforest amidst the darkest of autumn? Yes please.

Curiosity Trip: Music For Plants was an event series that took plant therapy onto a whole new level by transforming the Kaisaniemi Botanic Garden into a holistic art installation during 20.-24.11.2019. By using ambitious lighting, video art and ambient music, the visitors were engulfed in a relaxing and empowering journey to the plant kingdom. The historical greenhouses hosted various vanguards and rising talents of ambient music from Helsinki.
