We worked with contemporary artist Simon Ingram to create a visual work of art as part of our performance of Rhythms of the Brain in collaboration with Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki. A fascinating exploration of the inner workings of the brain and its response to musical stimuli, during the performance the brainwaves of Amalia, Somi and Ashley were captured in real time with an EEG headset and interpreted through specially developed software onto canvas over the duration of the performance.

The performance featured NZTrio playing Salina Fisher’s Kintsugi, Alex Taylor’s Asymptote, and Claire Cowan’s Subtle Dances while the brain activity of Amalia Hall, Ashley Brown and Somi Kim was interpreted as painting by Simon Ingram.
