The Biology of Plants

Music inspired by nature, and the ever-changing scenery that surrounds us.

Inspired by the likes of Sigur Ros, Tigran Hamasyan, Phillip Glass, Bela Bartok, Bon Iver and even Tool, The Biology of Plants take the skills of two classically trained musicians next to two jazz educated performers to create a platform where both can shine.


The resulting music lies on the precise side of experimentation – each song a masterpiece of instrumental expression, akin to a live film score; "... a new high-point for Australian instrumental music." --- Art as Catharsis, 2019


TBoP have released two albums to date:

'Vol 2' (Art as Catharsis 2019) & 'Vol. 1' (Supersonic 2018). 

"On Vol. 2, The Biology of Plants epitomize jazz’s contemporary anatomy. Within the genre’s virtually definition-free landscape, the quartet have found opportunity in the simultaneous synthesis and dismantling of jazz norms, creating an exceptional, invigorating album in the process."
