The brain sounds kinda nice.
Watch on YouTube: brainmusic: fmri into musical sound
Hear what the brain scanner sees. Data from functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) are converted to musical sound. (This is the short version; See the 6-part “Music of the Hemispheres” for more.) Data are preprocessed into “independent components,” regions of the brain which activate or deactivate in unison. Each component is assigned a tone, and the tone gets louder or softer in proportion to the degree of activity in the corresponding brain region. So, a melody is the moving center of metabolic energy, dancing all over the brain.

Greetings. I am a music producer/MC/biomedical engineer. Really interested in the fMRI sounds I am hearing. Would love to incorporate this into a song with your permission of course. If you have an MP3 version of the above video that would be amazing. Best Regards.
