NSOMNIUM 2018, SPAIN, MADRID

Generative light experience

Light and cerebral waves connected

“In the dream world, our mind takes control of our consciousness, creating memories of new stories and parallel realities which we experience when we awaken from our slumber.” Necsum presents NSomnium, a generative interactive experience that, in real time, converts the brain activity of the audience into harmonic patterns of light and sound.
