Our Body Music programme premieres Ona Kamu’s Elektromys performance and features Heart Chamber Orchestra by duo Terminalbeach in collaboration with musicians from the defunensemble and Uusinta ensemble.
ELEKTROMYS BY ONA KAMU
A music performance based on the electric signals generated by human muscles which were registered during a medical measurement of a human nervous system.
HEART CHAMBER ORCHESTRA
An audiovisual performance with an orchestra of 12 classical musicians and the artist duo Terminalbeach.
Using their heartbeats, the musicians control a computer composition and visualization environment. The musical score is generated in real time by the heartbeats of the musicians. They read and play this score from a computer screen placed in front of them. HCO forms a structure where music literally “comes from the heart”.
