Final Project Proposal – Barb, Ashley, Soo

Music has a profound effect on one’s body and psyche. As with any physiological rhythm, a strong beat or counter rhythm can simulate a change in their tempos. Brainwave Music Therapy (BTM) uses tones that prompt the brain to synchronize its electrical pulses with the pitch of the tones. Changes in electrical pulses can trigger the user into meditative, calm, alert, or sharper concentrative states.

The therapeutic experience relies on repetition and awareness of self. Through creating a physical artifact of a person’s brainwave composition, we create an opportunity to revisit the mind and give an instance of reflection. The object magnifies the alpha-theta waves in auditory and physical form to influence a state of relaxation and awareness.
