Speaking Hearts

This project emerges from researching sound that is neglected in a dynamic range. Speaking Hearts has two versions: The first is a piece where the hearts of the performers are amplified. The body is manipulated through extreme breathing in order to accelerate the heartbeat. The second version is the one presented. It is an interactive interface where each participant amplifies its own heart and when selecting different parts of the heart, a recording of the amplified heart is processed, creating different textures.
