About Us

Senscapes is where neuroscience, art, and music collide. 

Senscapes aim to bridge the gap between science and art, balancing analytical thinking and creative intuition to fully appreciate and communicate the complex human experiences.

Using brain data and phenomenological narratives from participants recorded in altered states, Senscapes craft audio/visual immersions.

Through this, Senscapes strive to bring audiences closer to the emotionally complex and thought-provoking experiences behind the data and traverse the boundaries between our senses and scientific knowledge. 

The ambition behind Senscapes lies in the diversity of its founders - holding expertise in neuroscience, musical composition and creative design.

Joe is a neuroscientist and musician studying the neuroscience and psychology of belief and delusion formation. He is interested in psychosis, consciousness, and the combined use of science and art to understand mental health and the mind.

Joe heads Senscapes to steer the overall direction and focus and also moulds the sound generated from data into compositions and arrangements.

Abigail is a visual artist fascinated by the future of textiles and the evolving relationship between technology and craftsmanship. Abbi specifically focuses on how this relationship is positioned amongst existing boundaries, and how it can be used to anticipate peoples’ future needs and desires.

Abigail leads the visual direction of Senscapes - helping to mould the broad, visual design and visual output of pieces, shows, and events.

Tim is a neuroscientist researching thedevelopment of deep brain stimulation for Parkinson’s disease. He is fascinatedin understanding the coding of movement and action in the dynamics of brainsynchronisation.

Timdevelops and sources new technology to continually innovate the waySenscapes generates it's art from brain data.

Steven is a neuroscienst using neuronal recordings to research the role of mirror neurons in the processing of movements. He is interested in how action is generated in the brain and how this knowledge can be used to develop BCIs of the future.

Steven leads neural data acquisition, processing, and transformation to provide the raw materials that will be converted into sound and vision.
