Inspired by the work of late electronic music pioneer; Mort Garson.
Plantasia is an album that takes the listener to an otherworldly place where plants thrive and invite the listener to express their wonder.
Garson conceptualised the album with Lynn and Joel Rapp, who ran the Mother Earth Plant Boutique in Los Angeles. The couple also wrote the accompanying booklet.
Plantasia was never given a wide release but instead given away for free at Mother Earth’s with any purchase of a houseplant. It was also strangely given away with the purchase of a Simmons mattress from Sears.
This project is a proposal for a gatefold vinyl re-release of the album.
