This Is Your Brain on Mussorgsky

"...Mazzola's free jazz improvisation of over a motif of Modes Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition" was accompanied by our live visuals interpretation. Instead of music analysis we used an EEG (Electrocncephalogram) to measure Mazzola's brain waves in real-time, and motion sensor for a gestural mapping. The data was applied for spatial distribution and movement of geometric shapes, and for different color modulations."
