Bio-Music - Manford L. Eaton

Something Else Press


Bio-Music by Manford L. Eaton / 65-page paperback published by Something Else Press in 1974 (original printings so they show some storage wear)


This pocket-sized edition reprints articles originally published in the experimental music journal Source that relate to the creation of music through human brain alpha waves. The introduction defines bio-music as “the term used by ORCUS research to describe a class of electronic systems that use biological potentials in feedback loops to produce powerful, predictable, repeatable, physiological / psychological states that can be controlled in real time.” The research on employing sensory stimulation towards the creation of time-rhythmic sequences is imbued with an utopian desire to create art that reaches towards a deeper human consciousness.
