Private listening to the melody of the heart.
 

This participatory piece combines a medical device and a music box, and hosts one visitor at a time.

Each participant is invited to a three-stage journey that starts by undergoing an ECG test and ends by listening to the unique melody generated by one's own heart.

This invention translates an individual physical record into sound and generates a personal music piece for each participant.

The story behind the Cardiophone - Pecha Kucha TLV 2018​

Cardiophone in the Bell Tower


The Cardiophone premiered in a seven floor bell tower of the YMCA international space at the International Performance Festival of the School of Visual Theatre in Jerusalem. The journey of climbing up the tower connected perfectly to the mental journey, when the first phase found its location deep below the ground, and the last stop - where the participants get to hear their own heart's melody - was located at the tower's highest point.
After eight hours of such personal journeys, all participants were invited to the tower's yard, and the carillon player tolled the music of all hearts with the tower’s 35 large bells, whose ringing resonated all across the city.
