Now I know what you are thinking.
To make music you have to use your brain in some capacity.
Well Smirnoff have sponsored a program, along with the QEF, called Mindtunes that goes one step further. By the use of brainwaves it allows for a group of disabled music fans make music with nothing but their minds. The project is bringing together chart topper music producer DJ Fresh, PhD and brainwave technology expert Julian Castet.
…the electrical activity is recorded…
Using an ElectroEncephaloGraphy device (EEG), the electrical activity is recorded, then transferred into beats, which are then relayed into music.
Overall it’s a fascinating and worthwhile project that brings the once I a lifetime opportunity to those who would never be able to play music by conventional means.
