TheDJBrain is a research, book, coaching and app development project that explores the intersection between the virtues of DJing (i.e. the selection and mixing of music) and the positive psychology concept of "Flow" as defined by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi.
Using cutting-edge neuroscience, TheDJBrain explores how DJing is capable of creating compelling flow experiences that have a positive impact on the creative brain.
In detail:
The Research
Experiments involving neuroimaging of DJ experiences and states induced by musical sets from world-class DJs.
The Book
3fold - DJ Stories, DJ Brain, Last night a DJ saved my job
The Coaching
Develops specific techniques to include DJing modules into personal/business coaching. Plus mapping of DJ skills to a management environment.
The App
Will provide a shortcut for 10.000 hours of DJing with an app focusing on facilitating selection, matching and mixing.
