With this piece Alberto Novello a.k.a. JesterN explores the fragmentation of personality of the "post-modern man". Exposed to aggressive stimulation and overwhelming data streams, he must make important choices to follow a rational "mind path" while his time quickly runs out. The performer, impersonating the post-modern man, wears an electro-encephalographic headset which detects his mind activity. The analysis of its output reveals the power of the performer's three thoughts which are used to move the pacman in the maze. Music is generated form the position of the pacman inside the maze and visuals are generated from the music. The time and structure of the composition is thus entirely determined by the choices and concentration of the performer.
