Bristol Proms audience invited to feel quartet's heartbeats

As part of this year's Bristol Proms, a performance by the Sacconi Quartet is offering an "extra dimension" to the listening experience.

Using a robotic heart, known as a Chestahedron, audience members will be able to monitor the heartbeats of the individual players as they perform.

David Goran, from the Heartfelt project, said a wi-fi link between the Chestahedron and a sensor on the musician allows the audience to "actually feel their heartbeats in your hand".

BBC Points Wes's Jules Hyam reports.
