Forest Ambience: Mycelium (Live Generative Music)

This is another minimal ambient video that I recorded in beautiful Lithuanian nature.

Mycelium is the main part of a fungus, and now it is known that animals derived from them. Mycelium creates life where it was not possible before. More than 50% of all soil is made of living or dead mycelium. Mycelium turns rock into soil, so plants can grow and animals can live on new land. Mycelium cleans the environment from the toxic material and turns dead plants and animals into the soil so that new life can thrive. The largest known living organism in the world is a 2200 years old mycelium the size of 9.7 km² in Oregon, USA. It’s possible that fungus is a life form with the best karma on Earth.

This track is created with Korg Electribe. No sound editing or extra effects, recorded directly to Roland R-05.

In the background, you can see the Alternate-leaved Golden Saxifrage (Chrysosplenium alternifolium) which starts to blossom in April and loves environments rich with nutrients, like mixed forests.
