And then I had a test audience watch the film, also recording their heartbeat data.
At the beginning, all the heartbeats were out of sync. But as the film unfolded, the viewers’ heart rates started to synchronize with each other, and with those of the film’s subjects. We then merged all the recorded heartbeats into a single sound wave. One heartbeat, converted into a sound wave, sounds dreadful. But oddly enough, when we combined them all, the result was very reminiscent of whale song; certainly musical.
