CREATIVE NEUROFEEDBACK WORKSHOP

Vivid Ideas brings designers, performers and technologists to Sydney to share their ideas and connect with local creators.

In the first in a series of workshops which will aim to navigate the space where art, technology and commerce intersect, artists George Poonkhin Khut and James Brown will introduce participants to the interactive art of Neurofeedback.

Participants will explore a variety of creative applications for Neurofeedback using affordable and accessible digital tools and will gain experience creating and controlling electronic sounds through the use of brainwave sensors.

This introductory workshop suitable for all levels of experience.
