New Technology Has Music Made by Brainwaves | Online Radio Stations | Assignment 3: Industry News Discussion Board | Scoop.it

What if you can create music just by using your thoughts, what would it be like? Recent technology has been creating a buzz lately because there’s a program that can now do that.

 

According to BBC, programmer Adam Williams and his team composed of Robert Wollner and Alex Wakeman have created a special program that allows you to make music via your brainwaves. Using a brainwave-sensing headset, you can dictate and have the power to compose musical pieces.

 

Known as the Soul Filter, it debuted at Art Hack which 3beard company has organized. The event is a special gathering of East London’s startup community.

"Have you used technology today while teaching music class?

 

Since I arrived at school at 7:10 this morning I have! I started by scanning in Euphonium parts for the community band, 16 of them. That took about 5 minutes. Then I scanned all the parts for our marching band show for next fall. Three songs, all parts…. That took about one minute per song…. Three minutes and thirty seconds total. I’ve got to pause here and say that I really love the Kinolta BizHub copier/scanner our school purchased a few years ago! Scanning is fast, wicked fast! Every sheet of music I digitize is time saved later. For instance let me continue…."

I find this article very interesting to read. As a student that has attempted to bring music into the work environment of education I finally get to see the process of bringing it into the school like environment.

I think this is great especially for kids looking to get into the world of music early.

Kirsten Macaulay's curator insight, December 7, 2013 4:13 AM

Music teachers can multi-task. Technology helps us streamline the admininstration/ work to enable us to get the task of creating and making music faster with our students.

To be quite honest the picture is what drove me to scoop this topic. When reading through the article or skimming I noticed it talked much about itunes and the new things to come from the ideas of the "turtlenecked one" Steve Jobs.

How Digital Music Technology May Improve Your Memory - Edudemic

How Digital Music Technology May Improve Your Memory - Edudemic | Assignment 3: Industry News Discussion Board | Scoop.it
A digital music technology company hopes its efforts could help you retain and even clarify memories as you grow older. An exciting prospect for us all!

Alexx Castro's insight:

This topic is extremely interesting, talking about how music can trigger the brain to remember a certain memory. After taking my pyschology of play class in full sail I remember learning about how the brain can remember certain things if music or other items are taken into play. This article has certainly taught me something new about this topic.

I think that music is a great way to improve memory, because its something that people can be interested in and you can relate it to so many things. In the article it was talking about how if you go on a cross country road trip and you keep hearing the same song on the radio it can create a memory of when you were on the road trip. if people listen to music all the time and make relations to important things that your doing i think it can improve your memory significantly.

I feel this is a great read because I can relate and also agree to what's being said.

Alexx Castro's insight:

Pro: it is interesting that it talks about the tools his students use as well as providing the links to the said free tools.

Con: I find it a bit hard to understand the article as a whole, I like free music but most of the tracks do not fit the style I like.
