Hawaii Volcanoes Artist in Residence - Sam Nester on Big Blend Radio

Acclaimed Australian born trumpet player Sam Nester leads a diverse career as a performer and educator. He joins us on this episode of Big Blend Radio's "Toast to Parks & The Arts" Show during his one-month National Parks Arts Foundation residency in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

Hear about his music career and travels, including his Arcadia interactive sound and light installation that uses the biorhythms of plants to create music and corresponding light cues. It works by converting the fluctuations in galvanic conductance of plants to MIDI data to control MIDI instruments in real time so you can experience "plants making music." Featured music on this episode (with permission) includes "Bruny" and "Hector." More:
