In the demonstration we introduce MuseBeat, a real-time music generator that creates music synchronized with the user's heart rate. MuseBeat uses music to create an emotional awareness for the body, beyond conventional pulse tracking. The mobile application, combined with a fitness tracker, reads the heart rate of the user and generates music in sync. Our research investigates the reactions of people on the generated music during their daily activities. Our initial user feedback shows new awareness for the heart that MuseBeat creates and the potential of MuseBeat to help people to concentrate during reading, to calm down in the beginning of meditation and to fall asleep.
