THE DRONE TRAVELS: A BINAURAL BEATS X VIRTUAL REALITY EXPERIENCE

:: An Elevate Project by INDIGOISM featuring work by Jean Reiki and Warrior9

The first of its kind, INDIGOISM introduces brain entrainment to the public through this digital showcase piece combining binaural beats produced by Jean Reiki (Mind of the Cosmos) and virtual reality by Warrior9 through the immersive digital experience that is DRONE.

DRONE is a short sampling meant as an introduction to brain entrainment, a technique that stimulates the brain into specific states such as enhanced concentration, relaxation, meditation or sleep induction using a pulsing sound, light or electromagnetic field. This project utilizes binaural beats through audio stimulation to evoke the brain’s ‘frequency following’ response encouraging brain waves to align to the frequency of the pulse, thus inducing the aforementioned altered states.

The DRONE project contains traces of binaural beats in this 2-minute track. By then, the accompanying audio and visual elements would have occupied the senses fully, helping the individual relax with an end goal of escaping reality for just a little while.

Adding another artistic element to the project, the DRONE audio-visual booth was conceptualized by visual artists Soph O and Sam Lo (INDIGOISM). Taking cues from Archifest’s zero-waste theme, the booth features daybeds made from cardboard and other found packing materials from the artists’ studios. The result is a massive art jam featuring aural, digital and physical 3D artwork.

*Notes:

The brainwave entrainment function only takes effect after an individual is continually exposed to binaural beats for at least 15 minutes. ­The DRONE project runs for a maximum of 2 minutes, therefore has little to no effect on the individual. This project is meant as a sampling, an introduction to binaural beats and brain entrainment.
