Biologically-driven musical instrument

This project proposes to use the analysis of physiological signals (electroencephalogram (EEG), electromyogram (EMG), heart beats) to control sound synthesis algorithms in order to build a biologically driven musical instrument. This project took place during the eNTERFACE'05 summer workshop in Mons, Belgium. Over four weeks, specialists from the fields of brain computer interfaces and sound synthesis worked together to produce playable biologically controlled musical instruments. Indeed, a "bio- orchestra", with two new digital musical instruments controlled by physiological signals of two bio-musicians on stage, was offered to a live audience.
