THE NEURAL MUSIC VISION

HOW WE PLAN TO DEVELOP A NEW GENRE BASED IN NEUROSCIENCE, SOUND DESIGN & GENRE FUSION

NEURAL MUSIC

'Neural Music' represents a compelling exploration of fused music genres, novel sonics & rhythms. Providing for a thought-provoking sound of patterns. The ultimate goal of Neural Music is to provide listeners an experience of music that they have yet to experience in this age.

Neural Music is considered Neural Music when genre fusion paired with experimental sonics, patterns & the utilisation of specific neurochemical inducing musical writing techniques are carefully woven into one track.

With the fusion of these ideas we aim to push the boundaries of music and create an experience that is yet to be experienced by the human brain.

PREVIEWS OF NEURAL MUSIC

IMPLIMENTING NEUROSCIENCE

Neural Syndicate envisions harnessing neurolgical diagnostic technology to identify various brainwave frequencies, aiming to comprehend their correlations with emotional states, attention, relaxation, or focus.

Through detailed analysis facilitated by neurological technology, Neural Syndicate aims to refine the creative processes involved in shaping clients projects, allowing the music to induce desired mental states.

Ultimately, this approach holds the potential to maximize the impact of Neural Music on listeners by providing a personalized and emotionally resonant auditory experience.

NEURAL MUSIC: BLUEPRINT

FAMILIAR INNOVATION

Most of us would agree that fusion music is the most interesting to listen to. However, It is important for Neural Music to be able to be listenable to any human, no matter their taste in music, no matter where they come from, no matter in what mind state.

Accessibility Through Familiarity:

Integrating familiar elements from mainstream genres allows Neural Music to have touchpoints that are recognizable to a wide audience. These familiar aspects act as an entry point, inviting listeners in, regardless of their musical background or preferences. Listeners must be able to grab onto the idea to understand the music.

Engagement and Connection:

Familiarity provides an anchor point within the music that helps guide the listener through more experimental or novel sections and a foundation for engagement.

Balancing Innovation and Access:

Neural Music aims to be innovative without sacrificing accessibility. It presents new sonic experiences without being too avant-garde, allowing people with varying degrees of exposure to experimental music to engage and appreciate its offerings.

GENRE FUSION

An important aspect of Neural Music is it's genre fusion. Without it Neural Music would not be so novel.

Drums play a significant role in defining and distinguishing various music genres. Different genres often have characteristic drum patterns, rhythms, and percussive elements that contribute to their unique sound and identity. While drums are just one element of a broader musical composition, their style and arrangement can strongly influence the perception and classification of a genre. For Neural Music it is impertative it includes other drums from various genres, so it is true genre fusion.

While drums alone may not entirely define a genre, they are an integral part of the sonic palette that, when combined with other musical elements, helps shape the overall genre identity.

The interplay between drums, melody, harmony, and lyrics contributes to the rich diversity of musical genres found across the globe. This is why Neural Music will be a fusion of anything and everything.

So in order for Neural Music to push boundaries it needs fuse genres cohesively and in a way that makes sense and people can understand.

NOVEL SONICS THROUGH SOUND DESIGN

Novel sound design engages various cognitive and emotional processes in the brain. It stimulates curiosity, activates reward systems, enhances attention, and encourages creativity.

The brain's response to novel sounds contributes to the overall richness and diversity of the musical experience, making it a dynamic and evolving art form. By combining genre fusion and novel sonics we can grab attention like no other genre.

Novel Sonics through sound design introduces new and unexpected auditory stimuli. This engages the brain's cognitive functions, particularly attention and memory. When the brain encounters sounds it hasn't heard before, it activates neural pathways associated with curiosity and exploration. Which is a strong human habit. We are all explorers.

Novel sound design in music provides a unique and engaging experience for the brain for several reasons:

  1. Cognitive Stimulation
  2. Emotional Response
  3. Neuroplasticity
  4. Reward System Activation
  5. Enhanced Attention and Focus
  6. Creative Stimulation
  7. Memory Formation
  8. Aesthetic Exploration

THE CATEGORIES OF NEURAL MUSIC

The categroies of Neural Music are based on the states of the autonomic nervous system.

3 Categories:

  1. Neural Sympathetic Music (Fight or Flight)
  2. Neural Parasympathetic Music (Rest & Digest)
  3. Hybrid Neural Music (Use of Both)

NEURAL SYMPATHETIC MUSIC

Based on the Sympathetic Nervous State. Neural Music in this category will induce neurochemicals related to our human fight or flight state.

Hormones such as Dopamine, Norepinephrine & Adrenaline. The Neural Music in this category will more likely trigger the more 'primal' human emotions.

The characteristics of Neural Sympathetic Music:

  1. Fast Tempo & Uptempo
  2. Intense & Mindbending Sonics
  3. Maximilist Approach
  4. Intense & Multiple Rhythms
  5. Primal Neural Responses

NEURAL PARASYMPATHETIC MUSIC

Based on the Parasympathetic Nervous State. Neural Music in this category will induce neurochemicals related to our rest & digest state.

Hormones such as Dopamine, Oxytocin & Seratonin. The Neural Music in this category will more likely trigger the more 'relaxed' human emotions.

The characteristics of Neural Parasympathetic Music:

  1. Slower Tempo
  2. Relaxing & Novel Sonics
  3. Minimalism
  4. Soft & Minimal Rhythms
  5. Meditative Neural Responses

AI INTERGRATION

Integrating AI into Neural Music in an ethical way can enhance the creative process for musicians rather than replacing them.

With the development & collaboration with AI experts we hope to intergrate suitable tools for producers, composers, audio engineers, instrumentalists & performers.

Here are some options that focus on improving workflows and collaboration:

  1. AI-Assisted Composition Tools
  2. Automated Arrangement Tools
  3. AI-Powered Sound Design Tools
  4. AI Music Theory Assistant
  5. AI Audio Engineering Tools
  6. Ethical Data Usage and Ownership
