Samson Young is performing ‘Pulse Radio II – Hommage to Nicolas Collins (Debussy’s Arabesque No. 1) at the HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity, Hong Kong. The composition begins with a wireless heart rate sensor transmitting Young’s own pulses, which are then turned into “play-head triggers” of a recording of French composer Claude Debussy’s Arabesque No.1. The deconstructed piano classic and heart rate in real time are then overlaid and re-arranged into a sound composition.
