Plug Me In! Neural Interfaces for Musicians
Since the dawn of music, technology has paved the way for musicians to exercise their creative impulses. From the humble pan pipes to the EWI, the harpsichord to the Kurzweil, the taiko to V-Drums - musicians have found ways to harness new developments in their service to the muse. As we enter a new era of biomedical advances, musicians should embrace the possibilities that direct nervous system access offers them.
This talk will cover the technologies available and how they can combine to form intuitive control systems for a new generation of musical instruments, and will conclude with a live demonstration of a prototype system!
