Drawing on a herbal text written by the polymath and mystic Hildegard Von Bingen in her book Physica, and the writings of Pauline Oliveros on the healing properties of music and sound, the audio proposes a visitation to a physic or herb garden. Through attempts of descriptions of plants and their healing potential, the subject of the visitation shifts.
