LISTEN TO YOUR HEART! It's an experimental art project. Over a month, together with Liverpool Health Communities we listened and recorded over 32000 heart beats and their electrical activities. After encoding the electrocardiographs into notes and harmonizing the heart melodies, we composed a classical music piece of approximately forty minutes for string quartet with accomplished string players from France, Germany and the UK.
It is a speechless and incredible story of over thirty people's hearts about getting
lost in their ways of life, about searching for answers and directions, losing hope, but in the end finding the SELF.

    BRAVO Youth Orchestras is inspired by El Sistema, Venezuela’s national system of social change through music. The program started in the barrios of Venezuela in 1975 and combines rigorous classical music education with a mission to improve the lives and outcomes of low income children. El Sistema has spread to over 50 countries, including over 60 programs in the US. Oregon’s first El Sistema-inspired program started in 2012 at Rosa Parks Elementary, Portland’s poorest public school. I had the honor to photograph the students throughout the year as they devoted 2 hours after school every day to learning an instrument and playing in an orchestra.
    And now, we're making a documentary. These "journals" are small vignettes of our journey that will culminate into a longer documentary that will premiere in Portland, Oregon November 2015. Ultimately, this short documentary will be the foundation for a longer-term, feature length documentary that will continue to explore the
    stories of the selected students through their high school graduation. In addition, I will collect assets and stories from other successful arts programs nationally and internationally with hopes to develop a deeper understanding of how an intensive discipline in the arts can shape a child's entire life.
