2014 RESIDENCY

George worked on two major projects:

Alpha_Lab: a collaboration with composer James Brown.
AlphaLab is a new interactive art project by award winning artist George Khut exploring the creative potential of brainwave controlled interactive art. The project is exploring possibilities for a new type of electronic art practice, in which attention, experience and compositional form become entwined. During their residency at Bundanon, Khut and Brown will be composing interactive soundscapes and vibro-tactile sub-bass patterns that respond to changes in brain waves and eye movement patterns often associated with meditative states of attention.

(Foundation for Art and Creative Technologies) in Liverpool, UK, in March 2015.
