  2. Epilepsy is a neurological disorder, characterized by unpredictable seizures that occur when the electrical signals in the brain misfire. These overactive electrical discharges disrupt the brain's normal electrical activity and cause a temporary communication problem among nerve cells. The person may lose consciousness or seem unaware of what's going on, make involuntary motions or experience unusual feelings or sensations. The electrical discharges that occur in the brain can be measured with an EEG (elektro-encefalogram) scan.

     

    For Echo Sanne Vaassen transformed an EEG scan of her brain into sound. She translated the waves of her neurological disorder into scores that can be played from a music box.
