Beneath a glowing pyramid, a seasoned meditator sits peacefully in lotus position, wearing an EEG headset. As their meditation deepens, the pyramid pulses and responds.
Alpha and Theta brainwaves bloom into rich fractal art and morphing video, illuminating the pyramid's walls. Participants hear and feel the meditator's heartbeat magnified into deep-bass, mixed with a lush soundscape sampled from nature, space, anthropology archives, sacred tunes, and Burners murmuring self-authored prayers.
An EEG headset captures live brain waves of the person meditating beneath the pyramid. The pyramid comes alive with EEG-driven video and sound.
Meditators are the crown jewel of Mind Murmur. As their meditation deepens into Alpha and Theta brain wave states, video and sound become increasingly lush.
EEG responsive video illuminates the pyramid's walls, both inside and out. We'll use live brain waves to mingle video imagery with morphing fractal art.
Sensual sound flows through the pyramid, cued by brain waves. Animal voices, planetary fields, murmured prayer, a secret forest, heartbeats, bells... sonified, sculpted, intertwined.
Throughout the week we'll host special events, including discussions on consciousness and meditation (led by PhD physicists), plus guest DJs and VJs at the pyramid.
Creating Burning Man projects can be extremely challenging. Our team of programmers, AV artists, and fabricators stretch from Moscow to Berkeley. For Mind Murmur, I've spent hundreds of hours (and more) designing, researching, networking, planning.
Why do I do it?
Because. I want to share subtle insights into non-locality and non-ownership of consciousness gleaned from 10-years of meditating on boulders in dazzling sunlight. I want you to feel what the hills and trails of California have taught me: we ARE all connected. This core intent is embedded in everything we're doing, sacred journey.
Dina, Aurel and Nir collaborated on Midnight Star, a Burning Man 2017 Art Installation.
The warmest welcome possible to this year's new crew members. Bridging oceans, cultures, mountains and time zones, we collaborate remotely to bring art to fruition.
