Stage 2: electrode placement

Now that I have worn the eeg data skin through the aperture of international border controls in multiple countries and all social settings from the last 3 months, I feel much more comfortable making it actually start functioning. .. slowly.

next will be integration of wiring in such a way that it doesnt destroy the aesthetic that is emerging, so...
There is no rush.

It must feel as aesthetically comfortable as it must look, otherwise the only data I will be reading from my brain with it will be anxiety that it looks dumb, which will influence and possibly ruin says data.

Interesting how much the electrodes look like spores in this configuration. ;-)

My placement modality is based on my goosebump profile:
These are places I discerned the feeling of goosebumps when I see/hear things that cause goosebumps like certain movie trailers, music, situations. ..

I figured that if I can feel them (goosebumps) physically and reliably already, then those would be a much better places to measure brain activity on the scalp. ..I could be wrong but that is actually more interesting than being right in this instance ;-)

Ok. .. gotta get ready for tonight's concert

here is a much nicer sonopixel recording. i expanded the frequency range and tweaked the drum-i-ness. now i am finishing the sensor rebuild so i can add the last part-the matrix this sound gets played into and transformed.

this is a compilation of sonomorphs from the last couple of months since i got back from montreal.the software is feeling really good now. ive got low end and high end and everything snakes nicely from theme to theme.  the sound mutation is becoming a bit more subtle and creates some crazy waveforms and sonic spaces in the phase scope and in headphones. 

the "mixtape" is all of the more interesting stuff i heard while listening bck to everything that was recorded. remember that all sounds are produced by single synth that uses quad-vector gestural synthesis to produce them. the percussive sounds are still seprate entities until the new version, to be released after the release of the system online and to contributors.

strange as this sounds now, i think this (beatjazz/neuro et al) is going to turn into a headphone dominant music form very soon, if not already. much of the detail cant be appreciated without them so peep the mixtape accordingly.
