How the 'Heartbeat' video music track was created for 'At the Heart of It All'....
The musical track 'Heartbeat' was commissioned to Pete Kines in January 2014 by the video’s producer, Deva-Marie Beck, who provided the original idea of listening to the human heart and using percussion instruments. The first versions of the musical track, slides and messages — used in the video — were mutually- inspirational in the creative process towards the final version of the video. The latest version — called ‘Heartbeat’ — was composed and performed by Pete Kines who is a drummer and percussionist, as well as a senior researcher in workplace health and safety. The musical track was mastered by Andrew Kines — who also was the video editor for NIGH's first global project 'Nurses & Midwives: Now More Than Ever for a Healthy World.' -- available here in eight language versions.
The musical instruments used – in order of the musical track: Cabasa, vibraphone, glockenspiel, claves, voices (singing “Ahh”), tambourine, drum set, pan flute, tubular bells, concert bass drum, timpani, gong and bird whistles, plus — at the beginning and end — a genuine recording of a heartbeat.
