Computational artist Peter Crnorkrak shares What Need Angel.
Crnorkrak describes What Need Angel as “a synesthetic transcription of the brainwave response of a five year old boy while listening to music.”
Using an electroencephalograph (EEG) headset, he first recorded the boy’s responses to music in a darkened room and then his responses to a music-less visual stimuli, mapping the corresponding neural responses in a video.
The best part? He used the music of Burial, specifically ‘Loner’, ‘Kindred’, ‘Rival Dealer’ and ‘Come Down To Us’. Watch the video below and head to his Vimeo for a full accounting of his methodology. [H/T Hyperdub]
