The goal of this project was to incorporate binaural beats and tones with music tracks created by David & Steve Gordon's Binaural Beats Research.
The beats and tones are designed to match different brainwave bands for different potential effects for the listener, depending on the nature of the music and the brainwave frequencies involved. We use Hz to stand for one vibration or cycle per second.
When we follow a musical rhythm or a beat with our attentions, our brain creates whats called an auditory evoked potential, which can be measured over most of the brain. These evoked potentials, repeated in rhythm, create what we know as brainwaves. Click to read article
