IBVA recommends


Maximising creativity IBVA is the 'Theremin of the 21st century'. IBVA has been utilised at the electronic symposia Siggraph and Ars Electronica in the 1990's by digital musicians creating soundscapes via brainwave interaction. As IBVA generates MIDI signals you can make music with your eyes shut. For more sound control an Xtra patch for MAX users is included too.

DJ Towa Tei (Deee-Lite) loves IBVA's creativity, in fact he has provided some sound samples to inspire users when they learn IBVA's 3D sound control with IBVA's software vs3. In the early 1900's when the amazing Theremin device was played in public, invisibly altering pitch and volume by a magical gesture was premiered. 'Cyber instruments' such as Data gloves playing virtual flutes (Jaron Lanier) using the Gold brick interface defined cutting edge digital music synthesis with MIDI.

Simply with IBVA pitch, volume, instrument and channel are all controllable with your brainwaves. By assigning specific MIDI notes to correspond with bandwidths of your brainwave's Hertz and power, you can trigger notes, chords and play samples. You may prefer to remix a prearranged composition with a 'live' brain interaction. 3D sound is controllable by just one mono channel of IBVA, hearing really is believing !
