Beginning with Heart Performance

Video recording of live performance

This work attempts to explore the relationship between life and music through musical performance. The heartbeat is a living rhythm; the performer performs music through his own heartbeat as the rhythm. However, the rhythm of the heartbeat is affected by different factors such as mood, respiration, body movement, the response of sound, and so on. Therefore, these changes also affect the rhythm of the musical performance.

This circular relationship gives a new perspective to traditional music performance and shows the most natural and lively change in live music.
