I can hear your heart beat
Interactive sound installation during Fylkingen 80 years anniversary at Musikmuseet in Stockholm, 2013.
Technology: telemetric equipment, two speakers, electrodes and amplifier
The interactive sound installation is based on heartbeats and on an encounter between two people. In this work the silent becomes heard and the importance of interaction is emphasised. Three electrodes are placed on the participators breast. The heartbeats of the participators are transmitted through separate speakers. After a few seconds the heartbeats of the participants synchronise for a while, until they found their own rhythm again. An intimate meeting between their hearts take place.
In cooperation with
Bertil Nordström, researcher at Arbetslivsinstitutet in Umeå
