A Stark Mind is a live audiovisual performance for viola, violin and percussion where the real-time graphical score controlled by brainwaves.
Using a hybrid-brain-computer music interface, a performer wearing a brain cap controls the visual score, which is projected live on-stage.
(The methods of brainwave control are SSVEP, motor imagery and affective response)
The different visual patterns represent different musical excerpt for the musicians to follow.
This footage is taken from a performance at the 11th International Symposium on Computer Music Multidisciplinary Research (CMMR) on the 16th June, 2015
