Making music with the electricity of the body, muscle and brain.

Performance by Atau Tanaka with Cicanoise.

Atau Tanaka creates and performs gestural music by capturing the physiological signal of the muscle (electromyogram signal, EMG).

Cicanoise, a self-taught musician with a psycho-motor handicap, comes from the brut-pop scene and plays electronic music on modular synthesizers. Following a first meeting at the Sonic Protest Festival in 2021, this collaboration is developing within the framework of the BBDMI project: experimenting in musical circumstances with new prototypes of body interfaces. The EAVI EMG prototype will be tested for the first time in public in a musical context open to neurodiversity.


  • 7:00 pm opening of the doors
  • 7:15 pm Introduction by Anne Sèdes and Atau Tanaka

Three major objectives:

  • To make music with the electricity of the body, the muscle and the brain
  • To make available in open source and open hardware instrumental prototypes hybridizing EMG and EEG (electrical signals electromyograms and electroencephalograms)
  • Develop user studies with expert musicians, learning musicians open to neurodiversity, and the general public
  • The program will be punctuated by performances, concerts and meetings with the public.
