The Neurospaces project, developed by Timothy Schmele, intends to sonorize the neuronal activity transforming brain recordings into an audio composition and mapping the sound through 3D techniques. The idea won the Phonos-KiiCS grant organized by the Scientific Communication Observatory from Universitat Pompeu Fabra (OCC-UPF) and Phonos Foundation, that looked for an artistic project of musical production that would bring together neuroscience and technology.
Schmele presented his work on September 16th at the “Art and Science Showroom” in this year’s edition of Campus Gutenberg. “Neurospaces” transformed the room of the UPF into a cerebral sound map through a live instrumental quintet and electronic music.
The KiiCS project (Knowledge Incubation in Innovation and Creation for Science) is a European initiative that aims to connect art, science and technology to boost innovative ideas. It started at the beginning of 2012 and is going to last 3 years, until January 2015. The Science Communication Observatory is one its European partners and that is why it organizes activities like this one.
