Atau began working with
bioelectrical signals in San Francisco in the 1990’s with the BioMuse.

musical instrument. He has worked with Ben Knapp of BioControl, Axel
Mulder of Infusion, and Marc Sirguy of Eowave, to update it over the
years. Since 2009, he stopped work with biosensors to focus on iPhone
performances in duo with Adam Parkinson. With this performance, Atau
performs for the first time with a new system based on
Infusion/Biocontrol’s BioFlex electrodes and Eowave’s ZigBee based
wireless Eobody HF interface.
