Description

Mort Garson was a true pioneer of electronic music in the 1960s and an early user of Robert Moog's synthesizer

'Plantasia' released in 1976 added warmth to the previously darker and colder melodies of earlier electronic releases. 

The album was inspired by the book The Secret Life Of Plants – a mid-’70s phenomenon written by occultist/former OSS agent Peter Tompkins and dowsing enthusiast/former CIA agent Christopher Bird, that claimed that house plants could read our thoughts, predict natural disasters and, above all, enjoyed listening to music.

Garson composed Plantasia in the seventies using a newly released Moog synthesiser for the Los Angeles plant shop Mother Earth.

Warm earth music for plants... and the people who love them

Recorded in stereo at Patchcord Productions Hollywood, California.

Includes Mother Earth's Indoor Plant Care Booklet by Lynn & Joel Rapp.
