Sleep Spindles

Sleep Spindles are bursts of neural activity that occur in the brain during sleep. They play a central role in processing our sensory experiences and in the formation of memories, as well as our ability to process and learn new tasks. In Sleep Spindles, eight hours of sleep data from six EEG electrodes is used to control the striking velocity of six arms of the robotic percussion instrument CADI (Configurable Automatic Drumming Instrument). The actuated shaken percussion instruments produce a sonification of the data in real time (over 8 hours).
