Unique Heart Beat Makes Philanthropic Music
Tuesday, 18th February 2014 at 10:12 am

In an Australian first, award winning recording artist, Christine Anu is set to produce a one-of-a-kind music track from the rhythm of Australians’ heartbeats to raise awareness and funds for heart research.

As part of a National Heart Research Day initiative during RedFeb – a month dedicated to Heart Research – unique, interactive heart shaped pods will be positioned around Australia to collect heartbeats to inspire the singer’s yet-to-be released music track.  

The joint initiative between Heart Research Australia (HROz) and Metamucil aims to remind Australians of the importance of maintaining low cholesterol levels.

Organisers says that by placing a single index finger against the specially designed heartbeat pod, the device is able to listen to the user’s heartbeat before translating it into a unique music track.

The heartbeat pods will be positioned in popular locations around Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane during RedFeb.

Anu, a campaign spokesperson, will be producing and releasing a music track inspired by the collective heartbeats of Australians who have engaged with the pods. The song will be available for download via iTunes after RedFeb, with all funds raised going to support heart research.

HROz CEO, Floyd Larsen said that during February, while many Australians are concentrating on matters of the heart, HROz is asking them to increase their awareness and take action for the health of their heart.

“RedFeb is a fun and active way to show your support for Heart Research,” Larsen said.
