What happens to a musician’s brain when under duress? For the Borealis Avgarde Extreme event Le Jury (Ricardo Odriozola, Einar Røttingen, Jostein Stalheim) improvised non-stop for 12 hours, during which the activity of their brains was monitored by researchers from Bergen University. The data was displayed to the public, as well as being used by electronic media artist Trond Lossius to create a live visual display.
