BioMusic is the theme for 2015.
The symposium will focus on BCMI, which is brain-computer interfacing technology for music. A brain-computer interface is a system that enables one to control devices, such as a wheelchair, artificial limbs or a musical instrument, using brain signals detected by means of sensors.
The BioMusic Symposium is aimed at discussing the state of the art in field of brain-computer music interfacing abbreviated as BCMI. Scientists from the EPSRC-funded project ‘Brain-Computer Music Interface for Monitoring and Inducing Affective States’ join musicians and invited experts to review methods for analysis and monitoring of bio-information associated to emotions, and techniques for generating music with a BCMI system aimed at inducing specific emotions on listeners. Hands-on demonstrations will be presented to illustrate the talks.
