George Khut will provide an overview of his recent works with Alpha (brainwave) neurofeedback. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with the brainwave-controlled artwork in the gallery, take a 'behind-the-scenes' tour of the sound design and sonification strategies used in this work (using Cycling74's Max), and discuss questions raised by this work: how is this kind of interaction similar to, and different from, traditional contemplative practices such as trance, yoga and qigong meditation? How might a consideration of these issues inform the design of future health apps and services?
