World First Concert of Sonifications
Sells-Out 350 seats at the Sydney Opera House !!!

Listening to the Mind Listening + The Sonif(y) Festival of the Art,
Science and Design of Auditory Information + The International
Conference on Auditory Display July 6-9, Sydney - Stephen Barrass

More than 350 people attended the 'sell-out' Listening to the Mind
Listening Concert at the Sydney Opera House Studio on Thursday
evening July 8, 2004. The crowds were drawn by the curiosity to hear
just what listening to someones mind might sound like in the amazing
15.2 surround sound speaker dome specially designed for this event.

This World First Concert of Sonifications consisted of 10 pieces of
music composed from an EEG recording of the neural activity of a
person listening to a piece of music. The final piece of music was
David Page's Dry Mud which was what the listener had been listening
to.

The concert was a watershed event in the sonification research
community that showed that sonifications can be a powerful, emotive
and expressive musical experience, a means to engage with and make
sense of reams of intangible digital information, as well as an
instrument for scientific observation and insight.

Listening to the Mind Listening was produced by Stephen Barrass from
the CSIRO ICT Centre in Association with the Sydney Opera House
Studio and in collaboration with Guillaume Potard from the University
of Wolllongong and Evian Gordon from the Brain Resource Company.

The Concert was part of the International Conference on Auditory
Display (ICAD) organised by Stephen Barrass in Sydney in July 6-9
2004. ICAD is the premiere forum for research on the use of sound to
display data, monitor systems, and enhance user interfaces for
computers and virtual reality systems - www.icad.org
