Man Creates Beautiful Songs From Dying Children's Heartbeats To Comfort Grieving Parents

(Video Link)

Brian Schreck is a music therapist at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. For the past six months, he's been developing a new way to help parents grieve the loss of a child. Schreck records the heartbeats of critically ill children. If a child dies, he incorporates that heartbeat into the rhythm of a song. He then performs and records that song for the parents.

One grieving parent described the healing value of this music:

To be able to have that and carry that around on my thumb--his heartbeat--I mean, I can listen to his heartbeat whenever I choose to . . . just to hear that music, it really, really got my spirits up. And I need that.

-via Huffington Post

I don't have kids, true. But this seems really -really- freakin' creepy and morbid to me. And not in a good way; I like good morbid. this is like... asking for a bad horror movie trope to happen to you. Geh.
