Related to the Physiological State borrowed oscillogram of heart and breath from a patient in a hospital. The curve moving on top demonstrated the heartbeat and that on bottom revealed the breath. Covered with stave printed on a transparent sheet, the vibrating lines passed through the centre of the screen and their positions on stave became consequently recognizable to pianist who then played these notes as a piece of music. The video was made initially alluding to the relationship between consciousness and unconsciousness, as well as culture and physiological state.

I got the vibration oscillograun of a patient's hearth and breath for 5'20'' in the hospital.
Overlap the selected oscillogram with the staves.
Set the notes in the saves according to the vibration of the heart and breath.
A pianist played according to "the notes on the staves."
