Working with alternate tunings like A=432hz and being endorsed by Cusack Music, Mayson Acoustic Guitars and Mojo Hand FX, frontman Tom Wall has been pushing the boundaries of modern music through his connection with nature, music and improvisation. This connection has been featured at festivals, aired on shows and taught about at Universities.
Wall's link with nature and music led him towards learning to compose music with plants, where he then incorporated his findings into Cosmic Knot.
Playing music with plants is achieved with a special midi device that allows plants to make music by connecting electrodes to the roots and leaves to register the electromagnetic variations between the two.
Through recording a plants electromagnetic impulses a wave is formed. Each peak of the wave is assigned a musical note which allows the plant to create music in real time with the band.
The inclusion of Mother Nature and A=432hz in music is something that is featured throughout Cosmic Knot's first album Inner Space and will be a staple on the upcoming albums as well.
Cosmic Knot is very grateful to have won these awards that helped them become the band they are today:
