The Smirnoff Mindtunes Project – Making Music Through Brainwave Technology


Picture 3

Smirnoff has joined forces with British electronic music producer DJ Fresh and PhD Julien Castet, a leading brainwave technology expert, to enable a group of physically disabled music fans – Andy, Mark and Jo – to create a music track controlling musical software with nothing but their mind. The project, named Smirnoff Mindtunes, is the first of its kind and focusses on how technology can be used to transform brain activity and emotions into music, “enabling physical barriers to musical creativity to be broken down.” Supported by Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation for Disabled People (QEF), The Smirnoff Mindtunes project aims to raise money for the charity through proceeds of the sale of the track.

50 Cent’s Street King Launch Party.


While 50 Cent’s original plan was to feed 1 billion African children in five years, he’s revising it slightly. He thinks he can do it in two and a half years. Fif has a lot of fundraising irons in the fire to achieve this ambitious goal. And the first up is his Street King energy drink. He is donating proceeds from sales to the cause. The drink hit shelves this week and has already sold out in many stores nationwide. The high number of pre-orders of the beverage enabled 50 Cent to send the United Nations a check towards hunger programs.  But energy drinks alone won’t feed a billion kids, so 50 Cent is brainstorming all sorts of ways to put food on the table. He said he is in talks with Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Usher and Drake about the initiative.  His party for the SK drink seemed to be quite the event.  Check the method.
