1+1=3 CV


1+1=3 is an interdisciplinary international collective working on the interface between performative art, music and neuroscience. Their research interacts closely with the history of brainwave music, finding new ways of introducing contemporary neuroscience techniques and artistic concepts by drawing from thoughts and ideas that originated in the late 60s with Alvin Lucier’s Music for Solo Performer. As part of their research, the group has developed the EEGsynth with which they can use live brain measurements to interface with analogue modular synthesizers, creating increasingly complex feedback loops between performer, audience and the sonic space.

1+1=3 is working with performances where multiple performers use the EEGsynth when they are interconnected via modular synthesizers and lights creating consonance and dissonance, change and order, in a push-and-pull of conscious and unconscious brain processes. 1+1=3 currently holds a research grant from Kulturbryggan.
