...oneirograph... and its 5th version, titled spindle is based on a research by Anna Stereopoulou, on various types of Waves (sound, electromagnetic, brainwaves) and the various phases of Sleep. The waves' presentation is being unfolded through the various phases of Sleep (NREM – REM), starting from the moment we fall asleep, until the awakening /dawn.
"...oneirograph... is a project / concept / mentality, which has been inspired in 2007 and is being developed throughout the passage of time, via various dreams and life experiences, through which I attempt to find questions, answers and solutions, in order to understand myself and -hopefully- get evolved as a person and artist.
After the long journey of discovering interesting scientific information about the human brain, I reached the point, where I had the need to express all these through music and sound; I had the need to share my dreams in an artistic way. That was the point when I read about the beautiful use of the “Spindle” and various types of brainwaves. Sleep Spindles, also called sigma waves, are a burst of brain activity, which may represent periods where the brain is inhibiting processing to keep the sleeper in a tranquil state; ...tranquil, but lucid, too! The metaphor of “Spindle” (eternal course of the Spiral), is the main source of inspiration of the whole project: The force, which derives from our own Mind; from our own Soul."
