Boomkat Product Review:
"'Brain Pulse Music' is the result of years of research into the bioelectric functions of the human brain combined with the traumatic aftermath of Japan's Great East Earthquake. When Batoh initially conceived the idea for this project, it was purely to realize music from extracted brain waves. There have been performers in the past who have made similar claims, but they have utilized electric current, static electricity and blood flow volume in the brain. 'Brain Pulse Music' is contrived from brainwaves, in the purest sense of the word. Notes included in the album package further explain the science behind Batoh's methods. Batoh's intention was to create a Brain Pulse Music (BPM) machine, similar in function to an effects pedal, which would interface with the brainwaves in a therapeutic way, allowing the user to make adjustments to normalize brainwave levels, which could prove to be an effective means of treating depression and anxiety disorder. The album was to be made entirely of BPM machine music, but the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011 altered this plan, while emphasizing the importance of its deepest concern. Since that day, patients complaining of mental instability increased at Batoh's acupuncture clinic, and people were ridden with anxiety. With his family still in evacuation as he concentrated on treating his patients, the concept of this album slowly began to come into focus. What was initially to be an austere demonstration of experimental bioelectric procedures was fully realized as part of Batoh's ongoing effort to use electronic and musical processes to reconcile the spirit and the body. All seven 'Brain Pulse Music' tracks are a prayer / requiem to the victims of the Great East Japan Earthquake. Two pieces are composed of BPM machine recordings and the remaining five are rhythms and melodies commonly heard in religious rituals and provincial festivals using traditional Japanese instruments. The 'Brain Pulse Music' recordings are the furthest incursion Batoh has made into the deep space and mystery of the human condition. The acoustic recordings are the purest expressions of his traditional folk influence that he's released in over twenty years of music-making, a deep and soulful expression intended to calm and aid in the healing of all around him. A concomitant objective of 'Brain Pulse Music' is to donate the proceeds from the sales of this album to the disaster victims through Japan Red Cross."
