Heart Chamber Orchestra

The heart chamber orchestra is an audiovisual performance made out of the heartbeats of the performers. All musicians are equipped with ECG (electrocardiogram) sensors which records their heartbeats. A computer analyses the heartbeats and creates notes which are displayed on monitors in front of the musicians. Everything is done in real-time – there is no pre-written score, but everything is created from the musicians heartbeats.

The result is a composition in which the score is evolving throughout the performance and is unique each time. It is a very interesting approach to making music and yield some very nice ambient results. The visuals seen behind the musicians are created in the same way as the score.
