Ben: “I really like the idea of linking music with a visual representation of people’s health data. There are so many different ways that this technology could be used, it was hard to narrow it down. We decided that the most interesting route to take was to directly link your heart beat to play music.”


James: “Yes, this relationship was something we wanted to look at – the music would change pitch, tone and speed, reacting to changes in your heart beat. If the user could hear that music was faster or picking up in tempo, we wanted to see how people would react to that.”


Kieran: “We thought that this would also raise the question of data security when creating visual patterns using this data. It would be quite challenging in looking at what is identifiable but also what is ethically acceptable.”
