Human heartbeats orchestra

Who would have thought that the gentle thumping of the human heart would result in an orchestra? That’s what the Heart Chamber Orchestra is all about, where it is a collaboration between PURE, a music collective, and Erich Berger, an interactive artist, featuring a performance that involves a dozen musicians. Each of them are wired to an electrocardiogram, and will rely on software that tracks their heartbeats, relying on them as fodder for both a projected visualization and a musical score. The musicians will be able to see said score on a notebook in front of them, and needless to say, the heartbeats’ response will change as the performance goes on, ending up in a rather frantic and frenzied finish.
