               My experiment went well last night. So well I don't think anybody noticed it.
I faded it in and out of the music mix--the whale songs resonated with the diesel locomotives outside whose rumble you could feel through the floor, the voices of emergency dispatch and aircraft control blended with conversations and art piece audio, the birdsong might have been coming from the lofty rafters of cavernous King Street Station. Tonight's experiment was magnitudes more refined. Thomas Deuel's Encephalophone marries EEG to music. He's trained his motor cortex to trigger a controller to hit and hold just the right notes in realtime. The Encephalophone Ensemble showcased the technology in a tight 45-minute jazz set at 9e2Seattle. They perform again on Monday. Do your best not to miss it!
