JADE is a new kind of electronic musical instrument that is played not with the hands or a bow, but with vital signs such as heart rate and blood pressure. The instrument’s primary purposes are for both musical exploration and for deepening mindfulness practice through audible biofeedback. Potential applications include music composition and performance, mindfulness and meditation practice, music therapy, and stress management.  JADE is currently in a musical integration phase with funding from International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation (IICSI)  SSHRC Partnership Grant, and is positioned for a second phase of development beginning in 2019 – 2020

Here are some Demo Videos:
