Cedar Rapids native, Jason Snell, has created an EEG-to-music system that allows him to compose and manipulate sounds live with his mind. The technology has enabling him to explore the space between consciousness and deep areas of the subconscious, including an intensely visual hypnagogic state where manipulating objects in my mind has an immediate parallel in the audio output. This system has created a power biofeedback system that erases the line between cause and effect as the brain and it’s immediate auditory output influence and shape each other in real time.

Based between New York, Iowa, and Berlin, Jason is a multidisciplinary artist with expertise in several fields, including computer programming, artificial intelligence, motion design, music production, and generative composition. For over 20 years, he’s fused these talents into multimedia projects, most recently exploring transhumanism by using his EEG system to compose music with thought.
