Dreamachines – CutUps@60 ideas

PZYK SKAN Liverpool Psychedelia festival of music and art

EEG recorded with ‘IBVA Brainmachine’ and video mapped and projected onto an oversized Old Testament Bible opened at ‘Revelations’ – the final stage of installation ‘SleepCycles’ with generative soundscape made using a Sherman filter bank and Ableton, modulated and triggered by the brainwave data (looped)

Dual Dreamachines, peripheral entrainment experiment setup

November 2018:

The Cyberdelics Incubator, QRU, North Amstersdam
All the sounds are triggered by the brainwaves of the participant, in response to the flickering light, peripheral entrainment attempted of Alpha and Theta waves.

Hypnagogiasation is like a Lucid Dream. I setup an installation with Kasina wearable Light/Sound machine, Brainwave monitoring + sonification with interactive IBVA Brainmachine during a Dual Dreamachines experience in the floating chair with  and a PandoraStar Lucid Strobe light. This all packed into 2 suitcases for the flight to Holland.

This was for The Psychedelics society of The Netherlands

The Phrontesterion (Dreamachine and percipient’s EEG sonified ) was installed in The Drill Hall upstairs, where we were visited by the public who had booked an appointment for a vision, a dream and a journey. Using the IBVA software and hardware the brainwaves were visualised and later transcribed by Luciana to the subject whilst they were professionally and discretely interviewed by the assistant Ms Rose.
