Music of the mind

Like nothing you’ve ever heard out loud before, Music Of The Mind opens doors to a whole new world of compositional possibility.  But as BBC jazz award-winning saxophonist, flautist and composer Finn Peters proves, the tunes are probably already in your head…

Reminiscent of a Kubrick film, Music Of The Mind (MOTM), is a truly unique project: one that combines scientific experiment, modern music, performance theatre and education, to make music that is both revolutionary and hugely enjoyable.

Inspired by the pioneering experiments of Dr Mick Grierson at Goldsmith’s University (an experimental artist specialising in real-time interactive audiovisual research with focus on cognition and perception), alongside Peters’ own research, MOTM utilises pioneering Brain Computer Interface (BCI) technology and specially commissioned software (written by Matthew Yee-King) to allow musicians to literally think music into being. This is the first time ever that such technology has been used outside high-grade scientific institutions.

The project has received funding from the the Arts Council. Neurosky provided Brain Computer Interface equipment and technical support was given by The Innovative Computing Department at Goldsmiths University.

pearls of wisdom

"Apparently people don't like the truth, but I do like it; I like it because it upsets a lot of people. If you show them enough times that their arguments are bullshit, then maybe just once, one of them will say, 'Oh! Wait a minute - I was wrong.' I live for that happening. Rare, I assure you."
