(UN) FOCUSSED | A performance with and about the brain

by Ivo Bol, Alberto Novello en Marion Traenkle

your brain my brain

In the EEG performance “un (focussed)” we are mapping and comparing the brainwaves of two performers into the outside world. By hacking an EEG we are able to translate the brainwaves into a composition of laser and music with the speed of light. This performance is composed for the launch of the Amsterdam Brain and Mind Project – The neuroscience and cognition research alliance between the University of Amsterdam and VU University Amsterdam.

Alberto Novello: programming and laserdesign
Ivo Bol: sounddesign
Marion Traenkle: scenography
Wijnand Geraerts: advice
