Music made by your brainwaves

31 August 2013 Last updated at 00:11 BST

If your thoughts could power music, what sound would they make?

The BBC met programmer Adam Williams who, along with team members Robert Wollner and Alex Wakeman, created a program which uses a brainwave-sensing headset to power a musical composition.

The Soul Filter was on show at Art Hack, an event organised by 3beards, a company which specialises in organising gatherings of east London's start-up community.

Mr Williams' father offered up his brainwaves to give the technology a try.
