See the first music video controlled by your heartbeat

Musician and songwriter J Views has released the video for his new track #AlmostForgot – and it’s controlled entirely by the viewers heartbeat.

Developed by Hello Monday, the track plays via a free iPhone app or on Android v 5.0, and uses camera technology that analyses changes in complexion with each heartbeat. A resting heartbeat yields a slow, chilled experience, while a more rapid heartbeat will give the listener something different altogether. Not only does the tempo change with your heartbeat, but the animations react as well.

We haven’t taken it for a run yet, but we think this is quite lovely. The song’s not bad either!

#AlmostForgot is a track off the album 401 Days, released on the 20th of May.
