A translucent projection half dome that has 16 channel sound via contact exciters that vibrate the dome like a resonating chamber. An EEG software program creates a complete audio visual experience based on either my dreams or waking life. Using simple levels made in the Unreal Engine, I can control a third person character with simple thoughts of moving around overlaid with the synesthetic generative visual system built with Jitter. The visual system is directly connected to the generative music system built in Max/MSP.
Mind reader is a documentary featuring a project conceived by Lisa park and built/designed by Colin Harrington. It includes 48 speakers in a snowflake pattern, 4 groups in 4 rings with 4 channels of sound. Using an EEG headset, the wearer’s thoughts and emotions are converted into sound and music which vibrates water in pans atop the speakers to make the sound wave interference patterns visible.
I designed a generative music composition software that is fueled by cognitive thought, emotional states and facial expressions using the Emotiv EEG and Max/MSP. I made it for a grad school project and it’s just one of several. I’m using a similar piece of software to sonify dreams and communicate with people in comas.
I’ve routed the SSL console to function as a MIDI piano for use with softsynths in Pro Tools HD 8 and Nuendo 4. The buttons in the master section are the keys and the faders are the cutoff, resonance, filters etc. Ignore my crazy hair.
