Human Organ Concerto Jo Caimo 2016

Human Organ Concerto is an audio-visual installation that has to be ‘performed’ by the audience.
An organ is being controlled by the rhythm of breathing of maximum 10 people. They breath through a wireless device that translates their breath into 4 electric pulses, which is connected to 4 different tones of a pipe-organ.
The Human Organ Instrument (HOI) is a device that registers the rhythm of the human respiratory system made for an ensemble played by everybody who can breathe.

Concept and realisation: Jo Caimo in cooperation with Boris van Heerden and Sjoerd Leijten
Production: STORMOPKOMST, OVERTOON and Werktank.
Special thanks to iMAL.

Performance at 2m3.
