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.
