Gel electrodes

Apply gel to all electrodes that will be used: AFz, C4, Fp2, T3, P4, T4. Push the end of the syringe plunger so that the gel gets squeezed out of the needle into the electrode's hole (white circle with hole on cap).

Leave both ear clips disconnected

Unplug both ear drops from the cap. Leaving them dangling would pick up frequencies from the room, which we do not want.

Start Session with Eyes Open with Video Feedback

1. Turn MIDI music off

Press "Music is On" buton so it reads "Music is Off"

2. Explain process to client

Keep eyes open, listen to the music and watch the video. In the beginning, where most pieces start with a single voice, one can see how the visual matches the audio, moving up and down and using longer or shorter notes. Then, when the second musical voice appears, the video adds a second line of a different color, and the client can follow how they work together, etc. It's not about "understanding", but about seeing and hearing and letting the brain make the connection, just enjoying the music.

3. Press Capture (green triangle) and check signal quality

Train for about 6 minutes. This is two of the shorter fugues or one longer fugue (e.g. Great Fugue).
