Brainwaves Augmenting Consciousness

Latest

Tickets available to enable you to Control your synths / visual software with your brainwaves

Control your synths / visual software with your own brainwaves with our VIP ticket option in  #HackstockBeyond #SFL17, London May 5-6

Have your EEG recorded with Brain Machine (IBVA) the best bit is we will provide you with the actual raw data file as well as a video of your brainwaves. Some of the possibilities from the raw data of your brainwaves include: using each separate brainwave frequency ( Alpha, theta, delta, Beta, Gamma ) from the front of your brain (2 channels) as interactive controls to manipulate any MIDI parameter you like ! 

This is great for use in your projects like generative audio/visual compositions e.g. use a specific EEG frequency such as Theta to open and modulate filters, triggers, effect samples, shift pitch etc. The data is easily imported for you to explore in applications such as AbletonMax/MSP, and visually with OSC, VDMX, Quartz composer and Fugio. Demonstrations of how to apply this will be available in the East room in The Trampery, Friday May 5th – May 6th, between 11am and 18.30pm.

We have two ticket types : for £10 you will have a 20 minute individual session with the Lucid Wellness Lamp ‘PandoraStar’ supervised by us (with unique accompanying music).
We also have a limited quantity of VIP tickets for just £25 where we record your brainwaves during your PandoraStar experience, save and export the data of your experience for you to take home and apply.

Brighton event – Mnemosyne (Memory), Pandora and Dreamachine

I will be taking part in an event on Sunday 14th May in The House of Alchemy in central Brighton. The pop-up gallery is located in the heart of Brighton’s cultural quarter opposite Brighton Dome and Pavilion.

Sarah Janes presents a talk about Mnemosyne, a member of the illustrious ranks of Greek Goddesses. Mnemosyne (Memory) was conceived in a union between Ouranos and Gaia (Heaven and Earth). The power of Memory is the force that enables mortals to enter the unconscious, collect the treasures of the divine and bring them in to the light of day.

Luciana Haill invites participants to explore and measure their own brainwaves during this invocation of Mnemosyne using a classic Dreammachine and a PandoraStar hypnagogic light technology. She is concerned with esoteric ways of accessing the Visionary, using psychotronic and contemporary photic entrainment devices, perchance to dream, enter a Hypnagogic state, inducing dream-like visions, entoptics and journeys.

Sun 14 May, 7pm-10pm

pandora205.05.17 – 06.05.17 Hackstock2017 – Opening times – 10.30am-18.30pm. Luciana and her team offers you the opportunity to book an individual session with the latest technological genius in psychedelic strobing white light, and potentially have your brainwaves monitored and recorded. Just curious ? You can compare this with a Dreamachine – an iconic kinetic light sculpture setup in our Arts Laboratory. Working with the Brainmachine (IBVA) EEG monitors Luciana and her team can combine recording the brainwaves of participants whilst they are experiencing the wonderful phenomena ‘PandoraStar’ – the latest in Stroboscopic Light Therapies. This  is a non-intrusive form of light therapy, which
concentrates the mind and involves the client closing their eyes under a flickering light machine. The session can provide a client with relief from tension, relieving stiff muscles and joints in the physical body. The session is highly relaxing and can have a profound relief upon the negative effects of stress.

L1150634We will also have a classic Dreamachine designed by artist Bryon Gysin in the 1960s spinning proudly on a record player for drop-in anytime. I will also take part in Talkaoke at 11.30am on the friday and have the East Room setup as an ongoing Hypnagogic Art of Neuroscience laboratory with Brainmachine (IBVA) and bookable individual Pandorastar sessions.

‘SleepCycles’ more visitor comments

I went to see the show at the weekend and thought it was excellent. I really enjoyed it. I thought all the pieces were of very high quality. I particularly liked your installation.

I thought all the elements hung together really well to give a powerful experience. The Victoriana strand worked very well through the artefacts and the drawings. The soundscape was also really atmospheric and bound it all together – were the sounds generated from an EEG?

Anyway, great show! – P.H.

Went to the art exhibition, Technology is not Neutral, at The Waterman’s Centre, Kew Bridge. What an amazing collection by some incredible female artists.

I was particularly drawn to the works of Luciana Haill, as I went to one of her Talks last year about all her work on brainwaves and her dream machines! Her work intrigues me, particularly as I have had many experiences through dreams, visions and meditations. Different states have also affected my intuitive art. I wonder what Luciana Haill’s dream machines would reveal?

When I heard she was combining her visuals of brainwaves during lucid dreams, with her art work, I just had to go! I’m SO glad I did!

Her collection, called Sleep Cycles, is amazing and not like anything I’ve seen before. The brainwave displays were creative and fascinating, and her art is absolutely breathtaking!

Presentation to Narcissus, wow! Death by Dreaming, disturbing yet beautiful, I loved the contrast. The Double Mind, incredible artwork, reminds me of some effects of my meditations.

I’d say it’s impossible to view this thought provoking art and not be moved and affected. It’s only there for a few more days, finishing this Sunday 8th January – I would certainly recommend it.
