Thought Conductor #2.1: October 27, 2001. Hollywell Music Rooms, Oxford. Presented as part of OX1 Festival, Oxford, by Bruce Gilchrist and Jonny Bradley.

For the OX1 Festival the database archive made from the Oslo based composers was supplemented with The EEG files and notations from six Oxford based composers. The same procedures were followed. For the performance at the Hollywell Music Rooms several members of the festival audience participated. Again they were invited on stage, connected to the biomonitor and asked to engage in creative thought: an origami enthusiast recollected making a paper lotus flower; an accountant thought about a financial projection for a board of directors; a journalist recalled her last piece of arts criticism; an academic contemplated his tie.
