We’re fascinated by an album by Japanese artist Masaki Batoh called ‘Brain Pulse Music’, produced as a response to last year’s destructive earthquake in Japan. According to CNET, Batoh modified an EEG medical machine to measure electrical activity in the brains of earthquake survivors, then turned them into music. The idea being less about entertainment, and more about helping people to “learn to control the sound, with the goal being to send the mind into a meditative state”. The album costs $20, and Batoh is also selling a customised Brain Pulse Machine for $700 for people who want to have a go themselves.
