Robotic Russian Folk Instrument Can Read Brainwaves

May 13, 2014 | Sophie Weiner

Russian sound artist Dmitry Morozov aka ::vtol:: has transformed a dulcimer-like Russian folk instrument into a self-playing robotic device. The instrument can either generate sounds through an algorithm or by reading brainwaves with an EEG headset. Morozov’s brain sounds quite avant garde.

::vtol:: has previously created a device that turns an encoded tattoo into noise, an umbrella that acts as a personal sound installation and more. Find out more about the new project on his website.
