Innovative technology meets beautiful melodies as award winning media artist Andrew Demirjian provides a truly unique perspective on the Beatles music. With a five-minute visit, Prof. Demirjian will map your brain activity as you listen to your favorite Beatles song and then translate that brain data to musical notes – the piece provides a sonic snapshot, a self-portrait of your Brain on Beatles.

The symposium is free and open to the public, however advance registration is required
