Brainstorms: A Great Gig In The Sky, a new exhibition that allows people to experience the music of Pink Floyd, art, and the latest in neuroscience technology, is to open at the Frameless Gallery in London's Marble Arch on Friday and Saturday evenings through June.

Last September we reported that fans were having their brainwaves measured as they listened to a Dolby Atmos mix of The Great Gig In The Sky, the emotive Richard Wright piece that closes side one of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon, as part of The Brainstorms Project, organized by Pollen Audio Group, Richard Wright Music and Dolby Laboratories.

"The Frameless galleries are reimagined in the never-before seen experience, blending music and art with the latest neuroscience and technology, in an exploration of how our minds respond to music," say the organisers. "Showcasing the beautiful and haunting simplicity of Pink Floyd keyboardist Richard Wright’s composition, the title track of the experience is the iconic Pink Floyd track The Great Gig In The Sky

"Visitors will travel through the four main Frameless galleries, each featuring stunning sky-themed creative visualisations of the human brain’s response to music."

Tickets to Brainstorms: A Great Gig In The Sky are priced from £30 and are on sale now. A very small number of VIP tickets that include the brain data capture experience are available.
