Cardiac Combustion Chamber, 2011

Cardiac Combustion Chamber   2011

Performance Installation

Cardiac Combustion Chamber is a performance Installation with live drummers.

As a reflection of the impermanence of the human body and all that it encounters, a carís parts are suspended in space becoming a drum kit propelled by the drummerís amplified heartbeat. This vehicle is of the subterranean realm of things mysterious and hidden. It is interwoven with components of a drum kit and heralds what occurs below the threshold of consciousness like a newly formed neural pathway between states of transformation. Throughout the evening an eclectic mix of musicians animate this piece, fueled by the beat that everyone carries within.

Commissioned by Chevrolet for Scotiabank Nuit Blanche 2011.
