What does the brain sound like? Neuroscientist and composer Cliff Kerr explores what happens when performers become composers by translating their brain activity in real time into musical scores. Leveraging recent advances in non-invasive EEG hardware and time series analysis methods information is extracted from the brain. This world premiere is surrounded by pieces which make use of some of the same elements.  The shared consciousness represented in Lutosławski’s masterminding of the aleatoric process; Ruth Crawford Seeger’s trailblazing use of textures in her highly original 1931 string quartet where the whole is greater than the sum of individual parts; and Reich’s literal expression of self-reference and feedback loops.
