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 Ableton, Max/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.
AMPLE FREQUENCIES: Ace Hotel, Shoreditch, LONDON, 7PM – TUE OCT 18, 2016
FREE WITH RSVP – MIRANDA, LONDON
From the mundane hum of the refrigerator to the melodies of the cosmos, we experience our world through the slant of sound. This October, Ace Hotel and the audiophiles at B&O PLAY begin to ponder, poke and redefine the edges of sonic consciousness with Ample Frequencies — a series of performances, site-specific installations and sound symposia taking place in New York, London and Los Angeles.
For London’s inaugural happening, we’ve linked-up audiovisual artist Adoxo and scientific researcher Luciana Haill for a sonic sojourn into the quiet mind. A one night only installation in our dreamy basement bar Miranda, the pair’s project will monitor an audience member’s brainwaves during guided meditation, reimagining the results as an oscilloscopic audiovisual performance. A panel discussion hosted by Tabitha Thorlu-Bangura of NTS Radio follow. RSVP free limited space here : https://www.acehotel.com/calendar/london/ample-frequencies-london
