Mindscape: A Journey Into The Mind - Christophe Cinq (Canadá)
Christophe Cinq. “Mindscape”; March 2021, Montreal, Canada. A sonic interactive virtual fresco reacting to brainwaves. Research-creation about procedural audio/visual systems in virtual space and brain-computer interface. Developed in Unity 3D with an Oculus Quest 2 and Emotiv Insight headset.
Mindscape’s title is self-explanatory: A scape from the mind. The game does that by harnessing the brainwaves, taking place in a quasi-complete abstraction of reality, diving into a virtual world. The player enters a biofeedback system by receiving auditive and visual cues of its brain state and ultimately interacts with it only with its mind.
Christophe Cinq is a Canadian artist living in Montreal and graduated in Electroacoustic studies at Concordia University. Multi-instrumentalist, versatile, he expresses himself musically by pouring in several styles and mediums that he tries to place in dialogue with each other.
