1. Torval at HANGAR.ORG 2015


    from Fèlix Vinyals Added 40 0 0

    Torval real demonstration at HANGAR.ORG in Barcelona. Pau is making music with his brain. Each green little light has associated one sound, when Pau looks at one of those green lights we can know trough the EEG which light is he looking at and fire the associated sound. Torval also reads the Alpha Brain Waves. The Alpha rhythm indicates if Pau is relaxed or nervous. If Torval reads that Pau is nervous, the environment lighting will be red, and if it reads that he is relaxed, the environment light will turn to blue. So, you can listen the music that Pau is creating and also see his mental state.

          from Yago de Quay Added 13 0 0

          A sensor based audiovisual performance that digitizes the practice of meditation. Through the use of a EEG headset, the cognitive and emotional experience of the performer is translated dynamically to sound and video compositions. It connects the body to brain activity, merging the physical world with the psychic dimension. Concept, interactive visual design by João Beira. Audio design and EEG live performance by Yago de Quay.

          • Radical Sensing: post-nose interaction


            from Selwa Sweidan Added 136 1 0

            "Radical Sensing" is a wearable technology proposed for 15-20 years out, at a time when we have foregone our noses, in favor of a post-nose neuroprosthetic. The post-nose wearable device communicates through a BCI (brain computer interface) to allow for an enhanced experience of smell. The radical post-nose amplifies, isolates, decodes and records scent. Users of the device can also download custom presets such as "wine training nose".

            • NEUROARTE : Interface ciberartística baseada em tecnologia eletroencefalográfica


              from Marx Menezes Added 9 0 0

              Dissertação apresentada ao Programa de Pós-graduação em Arte Contemporânea do Departamento de Artes Visuais do Instituto de Artes da Universidade de Brasília, como requisito para obtenção do título de Mestre em Artes. Área de concentração: Artes Visuais Linha de Pesquisa: Arte e Tecnologia Orientadora: Prof. Dra. Virgínia Tiradentes Souto De caráter teórico-prático, esta pesquisa estuda e analisa os sinais cerebrais capturados por meio de um aparelho comercial de eletroencefalograma (EEG) para embasar o desenvolvimento de uma ICM gráfica capaz de possibilitar que o usuário interaja com imagens e sons por meio de seus sinais neurais. O foco deste estudo está, portanto, na experiência do usuário pela experimentação do processo interativo. Para isso, foram analisados os tipos de ICMs existentes, desde as suas tecnologias antecessoras até as atualmente disponíveis no mercado. Também, foram estudados os tipos de sinais neurais mais utilizados nessas interfaces. Para o entendimento da poética envolvida neste processo, foram analisadas obras de artistas nacionais e internacionais que utilizam dispositivos tecnológicos midiáticos. Estes estudos foram a base para a construção das ICMs criadas, indicando pré-requisitos, poéticas e parâmetros para o seu desenvolvimento, tendo como principal ferramenta o aparelho de EEG MindWave. Foram realizadas investigações e análises reflexivas quanto aos níveis de interatividade propiciados aos usuários, sob a perspectiva de concentração e relaxamento do usuário. A pintura Mona Lisa de Leonardo DaVinci foi utilizada para compor os processos de construção das duas ICMs criadas. O resultado desta interação é a formação de padrões visuais e sonoros, atribuindo-lhes novas concepções, movimentos e sensações, em um contexto poético.

              • Torval: make music with your brain


                from Fèlix Vinyals Added 1,131 3 2

                Troval is a hybrid Brain Computer Machine Interface (BCMI) artistic installation created by the biotronic artist Felix Vinyals and the EEG & BCI Researcher Oscar Portolés. Torval allows the musician to create music and control the lighting of the stage simultaneously with a Brain Computer Interface (BCI) device from Brain Products GmbH, Germany. The installation is called hybrid because it combines two independent BCI systems. One system makes use of the Steady State Visual Evoked Potential (SSVEP) technique to allow the musician to switch on and off a set of music tracks from a MIDI sampler. The second system determines the musician’s index of relaxation that is read through the alpha rhythm to alter, accordingly, the illumination of the installation with a professional set of floodlights through DMX protocol. Part of the installation has been assembled with an Arduino, specifically the MIDI and DMX controller due it does not need high computational power, the ease of coding and the enormous community that it have. Also the Arduino has the advantage that has been intended to easily prototype project that interact with the environment. In Deep Description: Torval consists of 6 main modules: the visual stimuli tool, the EEG signal acquisition unit, the signal processing algorithms for both BCI systems, the outputs control box (Bebop), the music sampler, and the illumination system. On one hand, the visual stimuli tool elicits a SSVEP in the user visual cortex when he gazes at one of the six flickering stimuli. Then, the signal-processing algorithm searches the EEG data in real time for a SSVEP. When a SSVEP is found at a frequency coincident with one of the flickering stimulus units, the outputs control-box, Bebot, will send a MIDI command to switch on or off the musical loop associated with the particular flickering stimulus unit. On the other hand, a signal-processing algorithm constantly monitors the level of relaxation of the artist – the power within the Alpha rhythm of the occipital cortex. Continuously and smoothly, Bebop modifies the illumination of the stage trough DMX protocol in correlation with the relaxation of the user; a shade from the colour spectrum that ranges from red to blue is projected onto the stage. Therefore, the user can actively control the colour of the stage. Yet, as he fully engages in the performance, he loses his ability to self-control his level of relaxation and mental load; turning the stage illumination into a genuine portrait of both physiological states. felix@felixvinyals.com

                  from Synes Elischka Added 130 6 0

                  An EEG reads brainwaves and converts them into sounds. Each electrode has it's own speaker, so the audience can walk around and try to listen to your brain at work from all different angles... Developed during my Artistic Residency at Laboratorio Arte Alameda in México City in the beginning of September 2014. This project started with some sound tests earlier this year: https://vimeo.com/85624620 More coming soon...
