BHE (Binaural Headset Experiment)
is a project aiming to recreate
visual imagery through frequencies
and sound design.
It is a
synesthesia inducing experience
achieved through tampering
with the stereo,
frequency shifts and
surreal reverberations.
All of it is designed to create
complex geometrical patterns
and multidimensional shapes
through algorithmic calculation
of each sound in time.
The main purpose, however,
was to test existing scientific data
on brainwave patterns
and their susceptibility to
isochronic and binaural stimuli.
Needless to say,
every piece of sound
designed in BHE,
has a measurable effect on
different listeners,
but this can be said for
any type of music.
The difference here is
the attempt to lessen
the grip of emotions
and focus solely on the pure effect
of the frequency stimulation
and the innermost being
of the listener,
similar to Samadhi meditation.
Even though,
the sound could have been
more effective
without the assistance of
rhythm and melody,
BHE is first and foremost a
musical project,
so the subliminal sound
appears audible,
recognizable, but also harmonic
and rhythmic.
