Activating Memory - String Quartet and BCMI Quartet 

Activating Memory is a new composition by Eduardo R. Miranda for four musicians and four performers wearing Brain-Computer Music Interfaces (BCMI), using unprecedented technology developed at the Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research (ICCMR) at Plymouth University with BCI expert Joel Eaton and in collaboration with g.tec.
In Activating Memory, the BCMI performers generate the parts of the score for the string quartet to play, in real time. A group of BCI users collaborate towards a common goal, which is to compose music together...
