Researchers Reproduce ‘Another Brick in the Wall’ Using Brain Waves
Try this: Listen to the song “Another Brick in the Wall, Part 1." Did you know that the song as it's perceived in your mind could potentially be recorded and turned into new music? This past week, neuroscientists from the University of California, Berkeley successfully reconstructed, with the help of AI, a recognizable portion of the iconic psychedelic rock song by monitoring brain recordings from people listening to it.
This is an exciting breakthrough that has not only expanded our understanding of how the brain processes music but also offers hope for those who face communication challenges from neurological disorders.
So, do you want to vibe out your brain waves to Pink Floyd too? There won’t be anybody recording your brain’s electrical activity, but we can make music in your mind at the Pink Floyd Full Dome Show at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science’s Gates Planetarium.
Watch the trailer:
At the show, you’ll experience the psychedelic soundscape of Pink Floyd’s legendary “Dark Side of the Moon" as you've never seen or felt it before. We invite you to transcend reality as your mind enters a kaleidoscope of colors and shapes traveling around prisms, mechanical clocks and swirling galaxies. Here in this far-out, star-studded universe is a totally new way to enjoy the British psychedelic rock band’s seminal masterpiece album “Dark Side of the Moon.”
Music and science come together in harmony, showing that our brains are finely attuned to the art of sound. Let Pink Floyd inspire you to explore the uncharted possibilities of the human brain.
Don't miss out on this unique blend of music and science. Get your tickets, here.
