'Third Organ' is a newly designed wearable musical instrument that translates the performer's movements into sound using custom technology that measures their heart rate, muscle contractions, and distance between their extremities via stretch sensors. It resembles an external nervous system that runs over the body like veins to bridge analogue and digital worlds. The performers are connected to each other via an umbilical cord of cables that causes a codependency and negotiation, whilst tethering them to the machine to enquire into possible ways the human body can interface with non human entities.
