A heart will beat more than 3 BILLION times in a lifetime – mostly those beats are ignored. Maybe you will notice the beats as you fall in love, or stand at the edge of the bungee bridge. Maybe you will listen when your cardiologist explains why you need to be careful.
But mostly we never give them a second thought those vital heart beats. That’s why we at the UNSW Museum of Human Disease along with our supporters have decided to make it easy to think about your heart beat.
Musician Simon Barker (Kimnara Music) and others will improvise their music to the sounds of heart beats creating a musical interpretation of the sounds of our most tenacious organ.
iHeart Music is a National Science Week event (August 9-18) which involves recording audience heart beats at venues across Australia, playing the recordings to musicians here at The Museum of Human Disease at UNSW – who improvise tunes which are live streamed via video conference or web streaming back to the original venue.
