Jean Michel Jarre Live 2011 Electronic Music Concert Europe Synthesizer Laser Harp Lights Video
This world premiere performance dives into an uncharted realm of human expression, as the conscious and subconscious minds of the performers become the very fabric of creation. Imagination becomes tangible, while hopes and fears are brought to life through EEG brainwave scanning technology. This performance was made possible with generous support from the Yahoo! Boost Award. The MiND ensemble (Music in Neural Dimensions) is a new-media performance group that utilizes custom interfaces to explore the mind-machine-music connection.
The traditional paradigm of creativity and art has been as following: there is an artist, a thought process, and fixed medium which reflects those thoughts, leading to the realization of the artist’s expressive vision. Neurofeedback radically shifts this paradigm. Now there is an artist, a thought process, and a dynamic medium that actively interfaces with the very thought processes of the artist himself, a form of expression that drastically reshapes the way we conceive of the creative process. This presents a unique design problem: how can we optimize interaction within a completely intangible instrument? The ensemble hopes to make strides towards a deeper level of understanding of this question, and a significant contribution to both the scientific and artistic communities in the form of software tools and reference material.
The MiND ensemble promotes a richly creative personal awareness in which the mind is the medium.

After a successful year in 2010 with lots of events across Europe, North and South America, Recoil’s ‘Selected Events’ tour returns this year with some additional performances across Europe. After the BTTP festival in Manchester with Gary Numan and Motor, the new shows continue on in Vilnius (Lithuania) at Forum Palace on Tuesday 10th May and in Ventspils (Latvia) at The Centre of Performing Arts – ‘Juras Varti’ on Wednesday 11th May. As usual, Alan should also be available for meet and greet signing sessions after the performances at each event.
Here’s some words from Alan: “Last year was a lot of fun and very different for me to be out on the road so much. Even so, there were places which we never got to for one reason or another and now we have a chance to fill in those gaps, which is why I’m delighted to add a few more events. We have the unusual Mute night to prepare for (with maybe a surprise or two) and then these extra dates in cities I have never visited before. I’m very excited to be visiting both Lithuania and Latvia. We also hope to add some more events over the coming weeks.”
