“Creativity is the most important capability in the 21st Century. The brain is built for creativity and the LIVELab is unique in the world to not only help us better understand how creativity through music and the arts can change the way we live and grow, but even more fundamentally how we can enhance the way we think, learn and collaborate as individuals, as businesses, and as a society.“

“When musicians collaborate effectively, they are in a creative space often described by players as “group mind awareness” The LIVELab will, for the first time, allow us to observe those processes in action, cracking mysteries from which profound new understanding of co-creativity and the extent of the interactive mind itself may emerge. Understanding of human communication could be world-changing.”
