A live audiovisual spectacle in which the music and imagery literally “come from the heart,” Heart Chamber Orchestra is performed by twelve musicians from Houston-based Two Star Symphony wearing electrocardiogram sensors that render the musical score and visual environment in real time. Taking the structure of a symphony as its framework, Heart Chamber Orchestra contains four movements, and is performed on traditional instruments. The interplay of audio and video allows for a synesthetic experience, in which the heartbeats of the musicians and their relation to each other become audible and visible.
Heart Chamber Orchestra is curated by Bree Edwards and is part of Aurora Picture Show‘s 2012 Media Archeology Festival: Real Time.
