This is a piece about tension.
It is a record of my wife's pulse during her first viewing of Ridley Scott's "Alien". Her heart rate is combined with Jerry Goldsmith's score for the film and the subtitles of the film.
Viewers are deprived of the visuals and voices of the original film. What is left is the script and music along the rise and fall of my wife's heart beat. Which spikes during the most pivotal scenes of the film.
