Aural maps, neural futures
``If the mental objects of philosophy, art, and science have a place it will be in the deepest synaptic fissures, in the hiatuses, intervals, and mean-times of the non-objectifiable brain, in a place where to go in search of them will be to create.'' It would be fair to assume that developing the sonification of neurological data would add to our knowledge of the mind. Taking the above quote seriously, however, implies that this addition would also be a creation. This paper is concerned with the relation of scientific and artistic processes in an effort to aurally map the mind. In particular, it is concerned with the affect of this relation on the design processes needed to develop such a method. It will suggest that the mind listening to itself is productively scientific and creative.
