Music for Sleeping & Waking Minds is a 8-hour composition intended for overnight listening. It features 4 performers who wear custom-designed EEG sensors. The performers rest and fall asleep as they naturally would. Over the course of one night, their brainwave activity generates a spatial audio environment. Audiences are invited to sleep or listen as they wish.
