Music of the mind: a stunning string quartet created through brainwaves | Aeon Videos

‘Activating Memory’ is a composition for a string quartet with each of the instruments’ parts generated through a Brain-Computer Music Interfacing (BCMI) program. This program directly accesses the brain via electroencephalogram (EEG) technology, allowing four severely motor-impaired people to create the musical piece in real-time by choosing between four different musical phrases. This unique project was spearheaded by the Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research (ICCMR) at Plymouth University led by the composer Eduardo Reck Miranda. Heartwarming and fascinating in equal measure, Paramusical Ensemble captures the first public performance of ‘Activating Memory’ at the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability in London, and explores how emerging brain-computer interface technologies could help those who are unable to walk, move or speak to reconnect and communicate with others, including through creative expression.

Science Film Festival - Countries - Indonesia - Goethe-Institut 

„Activating Memory” is a piece which was presented by the Paramusical Ensemble in London in July 2015. Four severely motor-impaired patients performed together with a string quartet at the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability. Amazingly, the parts for each instrument are generated in real-time from the electrical activity of the four patient-performers wearing a brain cap furnished with electrodes which read electrical information from the brain. This information is used to control a generative music system.

Phần mềm đọc sóng não giúp nữ nghệ sĩ violin chơi đàn sau 27 năm bị liệt

Phần mềm đọc sóng não giúp nữ nghệ sĩ violin chơi đàn sau 27 năm bị liệt | Eduardo R. Miranda - Impact & Press | Scoop.it
Phần mềm đọc sóng não giúp nữ nghệ sĩ violin chơi đàn sau 27 năm bị liệt. Rosemary Johnson là một nghệ sĩ violin đầy hứa hẹn và từng là một thành viên của dàn nhạc Opera quốc gia xứ Wales. Tuy nhiên, một vụ tai nạn xe hơi hồi năm 1988 đã khiến bà bị hôn mê suốt 9 tháng, đồng thời não của bà đã bị tổn thương khiến khả năng nói chuyện và cử động đã bị mất đi hoàn toàn. Tuy nhiên, với sự phát triển của khoa học sau gần 3 thập kỷ, các nhà khoa học đã tạo ra một phần mềm đọc

sóng não với tốc độ theo thời gian thực, giúp Johnson có thể chơi nhạc lại một lần nữa.
