Pint Of Science, Cambridge, 2016| Dr Belin – Deciphering Addiction Artwork

tEdör – Compulsive Music Waves 01. This music video is my personal reflection to Dr David Belin’s work on addictions: I am addicted to a certain type of tea and monotone music. I composed the music with an algorithmic sequencer that I develop for Brain Computer Music Interfacing and made the video about my morning tea ceremony with a mobile phone held with a goose-neck phone holder twisted around my neck. The sequencer software is built to be used with neuro-feeback training protocols to manipulate musical soundscapes in a audio game environment where the listener’s real time EEG changes the sound. The tea is from Tedor Tea, of course :-) credits: Jonathan Noel (poem) | Chen Xi (drawing) More info on Pint of Science, Cambridge...

Recitativo – 19th March @ 395, London

SATURDAY 19 MARCH  /  Doors Open  6.30pm  /  Performance  7.00pm Recitativo – Fragments (after Lucretius and Negri) explores both the relationship between the speaking voice (as a kind of narration) and the possibility of creating an open work that integrates sounds and images. As a continuous work-in-progress, this project is reformulated (both in form and content) in its different iterations, and also coordinated as a structure that can incorporate other autonomous pieces. Central to this project is the creation of a text that brings together a patchwork of fragments, whilst also exploring space, location and specific ‘things’. It interweaves fragments from Lucretius’ poem ‘On the Nature of Things’ and Antonio Negri’s political reworking of these ideas in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The work...

MPA-RLS with Simon Casson | Duckie and Class

The next Music and Performing Arts Lecture is on the 14 March in Cambridge, Music Therapy Centre. Our guest is Simon Casson, from Duckie. Duckie are a performance and events collective that create Good Nights Out. From their legendary 20-year weekly residency at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern to winning Olivier awards at the Barbican, they are the purveyors of progressive working class entertainment who mix live art and light entertain- ment. Duckie’s work situates itself in the tradition of British illegitimate theatre that spans centuries, from music hall to punk rock, penny gaffs to the fairground, gaudy variety to underground clubbing.

MPA-RLS with Joel Eaton | Brain Computer Music Interfacing talk in Cambridge

I started organising the new Anglia Ruskin Music and Performing Arts Research Lecture Series where in the first session Joel Eaton is talking about his Brain Computer Music Interfacing projects.  Please come along. Brain-computer music interfacing provides the ability to control music using only your brainwaves. This has huge potential for users with limited or no motor abilities, such as paralysis or locked-in syndrome, where access to music making can otherwise be restricted. This talk will look at the development of BCMI systems that investigate how brainwave control can be used for musical creativity, collaborative interaction, and emotion-led live performance. 17:30 Monday 22 February 2016 Jerome Booth Music Therapy Centre Young Street Cambridge CB1 2LZ
