"Listening to the Mind Listening"
EEG data from the listening brain transformed into sound and music in a 16-channel 3D sound system
"John Sanderson and Tom Heuzenroeder, in Perceptions in C, subjected the data to many layers of processing in order to achieve musicality and listenability. They used data from only 7 of the 36 channels, sub-sampled it to 1/20th of its original rate, normalized it, rescaled each channel to a different register, applied a moving average of varying lengths, quantized to equal-tempered pitches, and generated Excel log-linear plots to be processed by the Coagula color-note organ. The pitches generated from Coagula were sent to a variety of MIDI instruments, with final processing done in Cool Edit Pro. The end result is unquestionably musical and listenable, but I wondered whether the data relations had been lost in the processing."
