Make Beautiful Brain Music

“The brain operates in the same units sound waves are measured in — hertz. You’re getting raw data from the prefrontal cortex but feeding it through software — a little bit from the left hemisphere and a little bit from the right.” – Luciana Haill, Make Beautiful Brain Music.

Artists, musicians and scientists have been fascinated in using brainwaves to create musical compositions. There have been many successful studies in utilizing brain waves to move game pieces, create digital images and even create music. For my next project, I will be recording my brainwaves while sleeping. I’d like to pinpoint the time where my brain is actually dreaming and transpose that data into music. I’m curious about my brain’s activity at this time and altering it into an musical composition. More on this as it develops.
