This project done in collaboration with neuroscientist Thomas Deuel will be presented as part of the celebration of the 50 years of "9 Evenings: Theatre & Engineering”. For this piece the EEG data from a performer will be used to control an ambisonic hemispherical array. The hemispherical distribution of the speakers will mirror the one of the EEG electrodes placed over the performer’s brain and the live EEG data will be used to generate sound projected from different areas of the space. In this way, the audience will experience the modulation of the acoustics of the 9e2 site through the brain of the performer, whose auditory system will be stimulated with sounds coming from the site itself, creating a sensory feedback loop.
Research for this project is conducted at DXARTS Art + Brain Lab.
