Four works by concert composer Tod Machover are featured on Flora. The title track represents his only composition to date intended for pre-recording, and is comprised of a computer-altered tape of soprano Karol Bennett. On the most fascinating piece, "Bug-Mudra," Machover controls the action with a "data-glove," which allows him to connect to players via his "hyper-instrument" system; as acoustic guitarist David Starobin, electronic guitarist Oren Fader and percussionist Daniel Kennedy perform, they are conducted by Machover, whose glove allows him to determine the song's overall sound.
