BEIRUT: 'Cedars: The Remix' may not be topping the charts yet, but a new initiative hopes tracks produced using the rhythm of the ancient trees will raise awareness about the need to preserve conifers.The Lebanese Ministry of Environment, in cooperation with the Education Ministry, is credited with this novel initiative which extracted the cedar trees' rhythm and handed it over to some of Beirut's top DJs who then added a beat and vocals.The cedar tree's rhythm was extracted by Derek Shirley, a Canadian bio-acoustics engineer based in Germany. Shirley assembled a synthesizer reading mechanism sensitive to electric movement in living organisms and hooked it up to the Lebanese cedar tree. Following the official release, Rayess hopes the song will be played and remixed by other Lebanese DJs.
