Hands Symphony – This ingenious website by the American Heart Association has come up with an uber-cool way of advertising hands-only CPR. Soon as you enter the site you will see thumbnails of different hand actions, each producing a unique sound or rhythm. Called the Hand Symphony, this low tech music mixing platform lets you create cool tracks by choosing any combination of the hand sounds. Choose between the Dance, Hip-Hop and Latin effects on the right to get a nice background tone that suits your mixed creation.
So what’s the point of having this Heart Association site, showing the wonderful sounds made by human hands? Well, if you think about, another wonderful thing hands can do is Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation or CPR. It’s a great way to raise awareness of helping out by learning a simple life saving procedure, using no other tool than both of your hands. Here’s how.
