Piece for Two Breathing Stones and a Drone

Elise Plans (Composer)

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


The Breathing Stone helps you use a simple breathing exercise that encourages relaxations and helps manage stress and pain. As you hold it, it collects heart data from the sensors on the right, left and back of the stone. It then makes music and light to guide your breathing.

If you breathe from the belly (and not the chest), you will stimulate the vagus nerve, an important element of the parasympathetic nervous system, which can cause a reduction in heart rate and blood pressure, helping to make you calm and relaxed.
