With Mind Controlled Music, the user can make musical decisions only by thinking. A head band is reading the alpha and theta waves of the brain.Alpha waves can be detected during meditation, when relaxing -and theta waves or more dominant when focusing, involving mathematics or language.
When the player approach a portal one of the sounds is replaced with 2 alternative ones in the same category. By relaxing or focusing the player chose the desired one.
The music library is organized so that music elements that fit with other music elements are closer together on a map. the player can navigate on this map by making different choices. The map i not a flat one but a 80-sided ball, visualized to the lower left in the user interface.
Mind Controlled Music can produce 510000 possible combinations of music so it will never sound the same twice.
The project is a part of Megamind, a new ambitious science center at Sweden’s Musuem of Science and Technology. The project have also been supported financially by Konstnärsnämnden, Kulturbryggan and Innovativ kultur.
Mind Controlled Music has been developed and composed by Håkan Lidbo, Cornelia Sojdelius and Ludvig Elbaus, animations by Dan Spegel and initial programming by Jonatan Liljedal.
