MindCoding is an experimental platform that allows all people to perform with code in real time, even if they have knowledge in music/programming or not. This platform uses the information collected by an electroencephalography sensor in real time and converts it into supercollider code. Every time any user put the sensor on the system make a live coding “from scratch” filling out a modular code architecture. Even if the performer does not have any experience on EEG control the system will take the data anyway, but the more experienced is the performer, the more he can model the live coding at will.
