Brainwave Art & Music

Photos of Week 1

Have you ever seen an art piece, so impressive, that you felt like it was speaking to you? Have you ever listened to a creative melody or a musical composition and felt like it was telling you a story? What if that art piece were literally speaking to you? What if you could say something back? What if that beautiful melody could sense your thoughts and reactions, and change the story it’s trying to tell you?

In this studio, we will delve into our innermost landscapes, our brains, and try to translate our emotions and sentiments into tangible art and music. Students will utilize EEG headsets to capture brain waves and use it to create interactive art pieces and musical compositions using digital sound, video, and software techniques. The students’ creations will respond to the user’s change in moods, sentiments, emotions, and thoughts.
