Music and brain in unconscious waves
Partner(s): Brain Mind Institute - LNCO (EPFL)
This conference-performance includes two movements:
A conference by Pierre Magistretti and François Ansermet around neuroscience and psychoanalysis about the enigma of creative process, especially about their unconscious side; a musical improvisation which brings into play two pianists (Orazio Sciortino and Richard Rentsch) with an EEG recording to access their brain activity in the creative process.
The signals are projected on large screens and spectators can follow, in real-time, images of the neuronal activity during this creative process.
