Wanted to pass along a message from UChicago's neuroscience and education lab - The Think Tank. They are hosting an event this Friday that some of you might be interested in.
Elastic & The Think Tank Present Cyborg Music
Elastro Fall 2013 #2: Organic/Synthetic Musical Collaborations:
Four Solo-Duos for Hands, Muscles & Brains
Friday, 10/25, 9:30pm
2830 N Milwaukee Ave Chicago, IL 60618
Remember the last time you saw a musician wearing a brainwave-reading headset in a duet with their own neurons? No??? Then come to a once-in-a-lifetime night of art, science, and techno-wonder with Elastro Electro-Acoustic Series and The Think Tank, UChicago's new neuroscience lab-on-wheels. Imagine yourself jiving to live musicians as they combine acoustic instruments with computer synths controlled by neural oscillations, muscle vibrations, and the Scientific American-featured Chromochord: an instrument made of light-activated proteins (FOR REAL).
