New Sounds & new smells (!) – the latest Phrontesterion requests your participation in The Ugly Duck next week (free) … launch party Thursday 22nd, then open friday-sunday, I am open 5pm-9pm/close each day. Using PandoraStar and Dreamachine to access your Reveries and Subconscious in one of the factory rooms on the first floor, .. with projected EEG
( sorry but no brainwave analysis or personal recordings are possible during this live art experience ) – photos / videos permitted, all are welcome
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.
30.10.16 / 06.11.16, 3pm-5pm
Free taster short sessions in front of PandoraStar guided by Luciana, first come first served basis. This is a hypnagogic self guided experience where you can journey within and see your imagination without constraints, a light trance in time and space that provides a feeling of rejuvenation and self organisation of distracting or unresolved thoughts.You can sit in one of the comfortable upright chairs with the lamp 45cm away from your closed eyes, or if you prefer, 2 may lie on the floor with cushions and experience simultaneously. EEG recordings to see brainwave changes in repsonse to the light’s effects can also be made upon request. At The Memorial Art Gallery Hastings, ( Second floor, sorry no lift ) entrance opposite Casa Mexicana / Grand Elektra.
The experience is profound and very visual, it requires your signature on an informed consent page – basically it is not suitable for any persons known to have Photosensitive Epilepsy, Migraines, taking medication for anxiety/depression, or if you are pregnant.
Anyone wishing for a private session of 30 minutes and above can book Luciana at The Wellington centre on the date you need ( from £25 private one to one )
Memorial Art Gallery , 7 Cambridge Road, 2nd Floor, Hastings,
Luciana’s work is sharp and inquiring. She sets up performance installations whereby we (the audience) witness her (the artist) undertake elements of experiment and ritual on our behalf. But this is only half the story, as what the artist does really well is also simultaneously build overarching state changes for us to experience as transformational to our own senses. This blending of putting her own experiences at stake, in order to then facilitate our own sensory involvement, is a clever mechanism to draw together the science, philosophy and magical elements of her work, in ways that are as smart as they are generous.

Haill uses X-rays, Brainwave monitors, Dreamachines, Strobes and 3D plastic doodles in her latest adaption of ‘The Creation of the strobes’ – a Brainwave (EEG) interactive performance that pays homage to ‘The Creation of the birds’ painted by Spanish surrealist artist Remedios Varo (exiled to Mexico in the 1940s). Any /all audio is generative where sounds are triggered and modulated by the artist’s realtime brainwaves, entrained using a hypnotically flickering Dream Machine in the mirrored suspect identity parade room. The atmosphere queried with strobe lights around a classic 8Hz Flicker and she will be drawing her captive fantasies in 3D plastics to further produce and maintain the creative state. Thus bringing it gradually to life, through a contemporary telematic ‘seance’
