Argentine band Reynols considered the recent event at the Barcelona Opera House was a well-produced "cover" of their own 1995 Concert for Plants

Last Week, after a three-month closure, Barcelona Opera House (Gran Teatro Liceu) reopened with a concert that only included plants as audience. The initiative seemed innovative, except for the fact that precisely twenty-five years ago Argentine experimental group Reynols played a “Concert for Plants”. Formed by Miguel Tomasín (who has Down’s Syndrome), Roberto Conlazo and Alan Courtis, the group Reynols is known for being one the most longest-running inclusive bands worldwide and for releasing peculiar conceptual projects like: “10.000 Chickens’ Symphony”, “Blank Tapes”, “Whistling Kettle Quartet”, amongst others. In fact, the 1995 “Concert for Plants” which took place in Buenos Aires was the official presentation of their “dematerialized CD” Gordura Vegetal Hidrogenada. This concert was documented in film, books and articles and was done with a significantly lower budget than the recent Barcelona gig.

After the Barcelona Opera House’s news appeared on the media, people in social networks -especially in Argentina- reported considerable similarities on both projects. Some posts in Twitter, Facebook and Instagram even suggested it could be a case of plagiarism. To clear up some in their own Facebook and Instagram accounts Reynols declared:

“We won’t initiate legal actions of any kind, because we consider it a very carefully arranged 'cover' or our Concert for Plants in its 25th Anniversary. Thank you very much.”

On the same statement the band also announced the re-release of Gordura Vegetal Hidrogenada in “dematerialised LP” format to celebrate the 25th years of this concept album. Until now they didn’t report any plans to present it again for plants.
