to record each & every heartbeat of all those involved, making up a sound bank of all the recordings, so to be utilised to create the sonic aspect of the installation. A library for musical collaboration of real person heartbeats, with names, faces & locations connecting with the humanity, animus of the source.
With the kind help from 3M Littman Digital Stethescopes we have been able to record the heart beat at low bass frequency, we are in the stages of manipulation & converting the audio to be used at higher pitch.
Aware that each heartbeat can be relatively similar, altered only my exercise, music tempo & controlled breathing, we will ask each participant to listen to a favourite piece of music- of any genre. Collectively we hope the variety of tastes will create a pallette of tempos to play with.
