The Brain Music Lab pursues research and develops creative practices to promote health and well-being by combining new music technologies with EEG (brainwave data) and other physiological measurement techniques. An example of their work is Vessels, an ongoing performance project led by lab director Grace Leslie, which draws on several years of engineering and music-based meditation practices, employing brain waves as a means of biofeedback training. In her performances, Leslie's brain waves are sonified by means of an algorithm that imprints their spectrum onto a bank of recorded samples of flute and singing. The result is a transforming architecture of sound driven by her physiology.
