Human Organ Concerto










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.


This installation is established with the help of Sjoerd Leijten, Boris Van Heerden, Overtoon, Stormopkomst, WERKTANK, Imal and the builder of the organ from Groningen, father of Marga. There are posters screenprinted by 1STE VERDIEP































Koorvorming

Music for the unconscious collective



Photos made in Quartair Den Haag by Ed Jansen



Koorvorming is a participatory performance. The audience is invited to sing together following a prerecorded voice, which functions as a musical score. The score is played over an array of custom made earpieces. Participants are blindfolded. One ear is used to listen to the score over the earpiece, while the other is closed with a earplug, so while singing participants are unaware of what is happening around them. Immediately after the performance every participant receives a CD with the audio recording of the performance and they can listen to it at home.

Human~Plant


My name is Jo Caimo, I am a pataphycisist.
I am searching for volunteers to give their head on the science sake? 

Our ecological footprint is too big!
Our body is not necessary.
About my research:
I want to place the head on a plant.
The scientific issues are:
What plant do we use?
Which technology do we use to connect the head with the plant? 
And how are we gone communicate in the future?

Rode Oortjes Meter


Social Excitement Behavior Communication Tool (SEBCT)

Highly essential communication tool for spaces with complicated social order. Like an opening of an exhibition or a party. It gives the amount of excitement through the change of color. The scale goes from blue (low excitement) to red (high excitement).


Sketch of people wearing the Rode Oortjes Meters being more or less excited, 2015





Manual






As a visitor you can wear a Rode Oortjes Meter. An ear-clip on the ear and a little box hanging on your neck. You are wearing something that gives more information then you are aware of. You don't see the light changing, but the spectator/ researcher can. They can interpret the colour-change of the Rode Oortjes Meter, a change in excitement of this person, the (unconscious) thoughts of that person and all the other variables in the environment.






Selfies wearing the Rode Oortjes Meter being less or more excited, 2015


Black 3D-printed box(45x30x25(mm)) + Red Plexiglas cap done by laser + 4 thin braided electrical wires + Black earpiece consisting of two glued together 3d printed shapes with RGB-led and (orange) thermistor (For more details about the realisation of the project, check IMAL where I could be in residence for making 30 Rode Oortjes Meter, special thanks to Julien Maire, Francois and Yves)

With not much sleep - making prototypes till it works properly, programming, ordering hardware, soldering, gluing, further programming, ... - fortunately they still got ready for the opening of the group-exhibition VIRUS at Netwerk, Aalst, 2014, where I presented the idea, a sketch, 4 months before.
