London’s Royal Philharmonic Orchestra recently played for one of its toughest audiences in years. At the end of each selection there wasn’t a sound, and none of the concertgoers even bought tickets!
The RPO and shopping channel QVC teamed up to test the 1973 theory by Dorothy Retallack that sound vibrations impact the growth of plants. But we’ll have to wait on the results until after the plants put on their spring growth.
In the meantime, you can join the experiment by testing it on your own plants with a free download of the 45 minute live recording.
And let us know your results or thoughts in the comments section below.
