Join Joshua W Bruner as he explores generating meditative soundscapes with an electroencephalophone or encephalophone; an experimental musical instrument and diagnostic tool which uses brain waves (measured in the same way as an EEG ) to generate or modulate sounds. Brainwave generated composition began over 50 years ago and Joshua is working to help make this established modality a more common path for modern composers to continue to explore. We’ll also discuss brainwave frequencies and brainwave composition in a short Q & A after the performance. Come to meditate in your own way or just come to observe and listen.
Joshua composes his neuro-meditation soundscapes around mimicking the human body’s optimal resting heart rate, breath rate, & brainwave states. He then blends these sonic pulses into lush evolving field recordings, which are also triggered by EEG readings.
