Heart – An Interactive Music Object

Heart is an interactive music object which reacts on hands moving near it. Chords are programmed in musical matrix and grouped harmonically. Heart ‘captures’ the feeling and the mood of one track but gives an opportunity to compose it in real time. When hands are moving too fast heart screams with different dissonant sounds.

I first came up with the idea of theremin–like musical instrument around the time I entered the Academy (National Academy of Art, Sofia). The next association was a Flёur–band’s self–definition of their musical genre − they call themselves ‘cardiowave’.
