Write a short summary of what happens in the radio or audio work.

This piece of audio turns the heartbeat of a child with congenital heart disease into music.

Translation. Provide a full English translation of any audio.

One night to be confused One night to speed up truth We had a promise made Four hands and then away Both under influence We had divine scent To know what to say Mind is a razor blade To call for hands of above To lean on Wouldn't be good enough For me, no One night of magic rush The start a simple touch One night to push and scream And then relief Ten days of perfect tunes The colors red and blue We had a promise made We were in love To call for hands of above To lean on Wouldn't be good enough For me, no To call for hands of above To lean on Wouldn't be good enough And you, you…

Please outline the innovative elements of the work

The band Amason, led by lead singer Amanda Bergman, featuring the likes of Pontus Winnberg (producer for Britney Spears and Madonna) sampled Dante’s heartbeat in a music studio using a wireless Bluetooth stethoscope. The samples were mastered to function as the beat in the song and were overlayed with evocative soundscapes and Amanda's powerful voice. By filtering the meaning of the lyrics through the eyes of a parent of a child with congenital heart disease, the song gives a glimpse into their reality. While the original lyrics are a tale about lovers' passion, here they are given new meaning. Lines like ”One night to push and scream” become about childbirth, ”The colors red and blue” about ambulance sirens and whether you’re religious or not, the line ”Asking for help from above, to lean on, wouldn’t be good enough” sends a clear message - these children need your help.
