Projection: Malcolm Buchanan-Dick purelure.com/

The animation was projected as Richard Durrant created music with a ukulele and kaoss pad from behind the screen. The collaborators were illuminated from behind gauze at the points in the film that their electroencephalographic (EEG) data was visualised, so that their actual heads became part of the animation.

An animated meditation on the different ways we experience music, developed with neuroscientist Dr Anil Seth. The animation combines illustrations of brain cells by early 20th century Spanish neuroscientist Ramon y Cajal, with electroencephalographic (EEG) data recorded from the collaborators, when playing and listening to the specially composed music.

This performance was commissioned by the Arts of Life Science Festival 2010.
