Kamilla // Miguel

Kamilla: “I wanted to look at how the speed of your heart could be translated into musical sounds, how it could change volume levels and chords. Connecting sensors to people’s heartbeat and then asking them to jog on the spot seemed to be the easiest way to do that. And people seemed very willing to test it out!”

 

Miguel: “I thought this idea was very interesting, to see if this could be used as a motivational tool for people to exercise. Faster heart beats create louder, quicker rhythms, so that audible change would hopefully make people want to control that sound for themselves. Kamilla was in charge of the technical side of it, but I came up with a name to combine music and health data – the heart-sichord…I was pretty pleased with that!”
