Brain Rap is inspired by the mis-characterization of Black music artists and interactive musical change.

What it does

Brain Rap uses EEG, emotion, and live performance to sharpen efficacy and performance skills for musicians. Not only does it enhance the creativity of artists through emotional response, but also the awareness of self on stage. By analyzing data captured with Brain Rap, musicians are able to tailor their performance. Brain rap takes out the guess work of what is working and what is not, leaving more time for the artists to focus on lyrics and performance. The only NAI+ (neuro artificial intelligence) marketing artist development tool on the market.

How we built it

Brain Rap is built using Emotiv SDK, Unity SDK, Touch Designer SDK, Neurable SDK

Challenges we ran into

Emotiv SDK didn't work properly, switched to neurable SDK

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Getting Neurable to work, connecting Centiment API

What we learned

That the team is strong.

What's next for Brain Rap
