If a tree falls in a forest, does it make a sound?

And if it does, what does it sound like?

Turning Tables -- an installation by Canadian Aboriginal artist Jordan Bennett -- produces sound as a phonograph needle passes slowly across a cross-section of a tree. What you are hearing is the sound of of a tree's rings -- a record of a life lived, of growth and its disruptions, of its seasons, of its memories.

Listen carefully. It is very, very quiet. Almost nothing at all.
