Alongside my passion for science and education, I share an equally fervent passion for the arts, which I express as a musician and new media artist. The installations and performances I develop explore the coupling between one's mental world and the external world. Through interactive audiovisual environments, driven by signals recorded from a user's brain/body, the individual manipulates and explores aesthetically-pleasing and meaningful representations of his or her mental/physical state.

Several of my recent collaborative projects, presented nationally and internationally, include Mindchill (Yuri's Night Bay Area 2008), Mindchill 2.0 (Fluxpoint 2008), EEG Ocean (multiple installations 2008-13), Music for Online Performer (In Tones 2010, NIME 2011), MoodMixer (NIME 2011), MoodMixer 2.0 (Mozart & the Mind 2012), and Just: a Suite for Cello, Flute, Violin and Brain (Sonic Diasporas Festival 2011), The Glass Brain (SxSW 2014, GTC 2014), and Ringing Minds (MATM 2014, Whitney Museum of American Art 2015).

I am also the fouding Creative Director for the annual Mozart & the Mind festival produced by Mainly Mozart, exploring intersections between music, cognitive neuroscience, psychology and health. For more information on MATM, please click here.
