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).
