TRANSFORMATION – New Perspectives on the body in music.
Transformations is a 3-day bonanza of lectures and performances that celebrate the logic and madness of the human brain and body when it creates music in unexpected ways. Meet modular synth geeks, cult brainwave-musicians, neuroscientists, neuropsychologists and experimental musicians and be seduced by their passion.
The events are held May 30 – June 1 at Trädgården and R1-Reaktorhallen, Stockholm, Sweden. See schedule for details. : http://www.oneplusoneisthree.org.
