Sound Recording of Participant 09

Please wear headphones

In today’s techno-centric world, electric and mechanical noises are in abundance, as if a mechanical chanting is shaping our daily activities and psychological states. Our brain usually adjusts the noise we receive around us and tune it to our cognition. How does our brain tune the noise that exists beyond our cognition (spectrum?)? Can we alter the sound with our mental state? Can we and do we want to experience electronic sound produced with brain wave feedback? With the help of EEG ‘how thoughts chant’ makes tangible what processes (could) take place beyond our knowing.

The installation is an interactive, immersive, auditive and performative experience, where the existing noise in the space starts to transform in continuous feedback once the EEG headset is in contact with the brain. Depending on the mental state of the participant, and how the noises inside the space influence the brain; the brain changes the noises, its frequency, harmony and pitch, without control in continuous feedback. Thus, generating a metaphysical state of the mind to be experienced by the body. The aim is to trigger and enact the idea of quantum entanglement, which we have to understand that it does not happen in space and time but creates a space-time. Inviting new knowledge enthusiasts to explore and collaborate in the impact of technology, speculating a future acoustic design for human-technology-nature cohabitation.
