Brain-Computer Music Interfacing

The exhibited music video titled ‘compulsive music waves’ is my reflection to Dr David Belin’s work on addictions. Sometimes I feel addicted to a certain type of tea and monotone music. The music was composed with an algorithmic sequencer develop for a Brain Computer Music Interfacing project. The video records a morning tea ceremony with a mobile phone held with a goose-neck phone holder twisted around my neck.
