1. "To allow ourselves to respond intuitively and openly, without hinder, to a piece of music."

    'Ravel in Merano,' based on Ravel's 'Prelude' (1913) and filmed on location in Merano, Italy, is the first of Heard Behaviour's work to be publicly presented. It is a creative response to the iPod phenomenon, where the listening experience and emotional responses are often internalised while in public.

  2. "Seeing the world from a different point of view."

    The Concept

    Continuing from 'Ravel in Merano's' exploration of the iPod phenomenon, 'Leicester Square on a Saturday Night' presents a surreal experience of the bustling square in London's West End. The high-paced pedestrian path of Leicester Square, juxtaposed with an excerpt of the slower-paced yet highly emotional 'Sonata in D minor' by Scarlatti, creates a peculiar sense of detachment...

  3. "If you haven't loved, you haven't lived."

    The Concept

    Love is an inevitable experience in life, and it is a double-edged sword that can bring as much happiness as despair. Based on Sibelius' 'The Spruce' from '5 Pieces for Piano' (1914), 'A Heart Personified' follows love through its birth and death. Still frames have been used to portray the personification of the heart from its initial awakening to stages of intrigue, curiosity, interest, happiness, bewilderment, anger, heartbreak, denial, disbelief, sadness, and the eventual aftermath of pretence and yearning...

  4. How is technology changing art?

    The Concept

    During the course of history, the arts have always been impacted by the technological advancements of the time. Whether it has always been a welcome change, we do not know. But just as French Impressionist paintings were born as a reaction to the rise in camera photography, Karlheinz Stockhausen's tape loops were born out of electronic devices and recorders, the powerful computers and softwares today have created a market that heavily emphasises on production (and the 'art' is then mass distributed via satellite and internet to televisions, computers, and other personal devices).

    But what effect does this have on the core essence of art? How does production and mass distribution affect how the composers write melodies, how writers pen words, and how actors perform? We present you a case study. Based on 'Giga' from J.S. Bach's Partita for Violin No. 3, we strip away the production, the costumes, the make-up, and the lighting, to present you what is really behind a hit pop song in the 21st century.

  5. A manga artist's response to Debussy's 'En Bateau' from Petite Suite.

    The Music:
    French Impressionist composer Claude Debussy (1862-1918) was a crucial figure in the stylistic transformation of western art music into the 20th century.

    'En Bateau' ('Sailing') is the first work of Debussy's Petite Suite (1886-1889) for four-hands. It has been transcribed for various instruments, and a notable orchestration of the work was done by Debussy's colleague Henri Büsser.
