The Emote Project
Intersection of feeling and expression, this project is about feelings, brain waves and real-time experimental animation, Created in 2017 this work utilized locally sourced/donate music. The project's time is 50 minutes. It is comprised of 12 chapters focused on 4 feelings, happy, excited, frightening and sad. Using EEG brain signals are recorded and analyzed. Signals are interpreted to nominate particular feelings in the participant. Our work generates 20 animated chapters in real time. We use various styles of popular music whose known emotional class has been identified and agreed upon by other researchers.
Programmed as an animated pin-screen, "The Rose" uses six different recordings of Claude Debussy's Clair de Lune, creating an audio reactive painting. The work premiered in 8K at the Ars Electronica Festival 2016,"Radical Atoms and the Alchemists of our Time" , Deep Space 8K, Linz, Austria, 8-12.09.2016
