The music below wasn’t generated by the computer, but rather was edited and rearranged by Dr. Eduardo Miranda, the composer and professor who is leading the program at Plymouth University, according to the fMRI results he observed. The real thing will be unveiled on Saturday.
Full story at The Independent:
Three volunteers – a classic ballerina, a Gulf War veteran and Dr Miranda himself – have undergone functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) brain scans as they listened to the Beethoven Symphony.
Having analysed their emotional responses, with the help of bespoke artificial intelligence software developed at ICCMR, Dr Miranda re-structured the original orchestral score to reflect the volunteers’ brain activity during listening. The Ten Tors Orchestra will perform the new work at the Peninsula Arts Contemporary Music Festival tonight.
