Watch Quartet of Paralyzed Musicians Play Music With Only Their Minds
In order to play complex pieces on stringed instruments, musicians need amazing dexterity to maneuver the different notes.
Thanks to a special interface system, however, this group of musicians can play instruments with only their minds.
The Paramusical Ensemble is a group of four artists with intensely damaged motor control skills. The quartet wears rubber caps made up of Brain-Computer Music Interfacing systems with electrodes that can detect the user’s brain waves. A computer screen is set up in front of the musicians that displays different samples of music – with the help of the caps, all the players have to do is look at the tune that they would like to play.
