thalamus project



The ThalamusProject is an electroacoustic group based in Luxembourg

The thalamus is a part of the brain that relays human perceptions to the human consciousness. The anatomical name is derived from the ancient Greek word θάλαμος, which is frequently translated as "gateway to consciousness". The music of the ThalamusProject directly relates to this picture: acoustic textures are used as a canvas to depict the interplay of objectivity and subjectivity.  

The soundscape is mainly created around an acoustic guitar (O Glassl, DE), a bass (C Yabroudi, LB) and a drum set (M Savo, IT). Together with various other instruments and a loop-machine, multilayered arrangements are constructed while exploring a wide range of musical genres: from American folk to jazz, from world music to psychedelic sounds.

The image below is part of a video which was created at the University of Luxembourg in the framework of the AI & Art project, part of the European Capital of Culture Esch2022.

We collaborated with the most amazing Daniel Gareev, who used artificial intelligence and machine learning to create a cinematic vision of our song Initiation from within the “mind’s eye” of an AI.

To create this, a machine learning model (StyleGAN2) was trained on thousands of images collected online which depict the conceptual meanings of the song’s lyrics.

As it learned, the AI developed neural models representing these concepts.

The final edit takes the spectators through the multidimensional latent space of the AI’s neural models, traveling across morphing landscapes and newly created artworks.
