            The paper proposes an acoustic approach to matters of the heart, attempting to fill the insufficiencies of language to correlate the organ’s functions within affective health. This paper describes the research process and the theoretical background that followed to produce the art project Heartprint Acoustic Practice . It attempts to discuss the cultural and historical contexts of auscultation practices as well as the separation between cardiologic research, affectivity and the aesthetics of the heart reflected in nowadays emphasis on the brain, rather than the heart, as the organ and site of emotion. The project, as well as this article, advocates for a phenomenological approach to understand the correlation between an individual’s heart health in a broader sense, and the way human beings recognize each other’s inner states.
