Abstract: This paper proposes a novel approach to composing music using the brain-computer music interface (BCMI). In particular, the system developed for this paper focuses on making the compositional process inclusive to non-musi- cians and those with motor disabilities, in addition to providing a new method of composing for composers. This paper references and compares two BCMI sys- tems that have been developed for compositional purposes, and draws upon these ideas to form the proposed system in this paper. Such system would aid the com- positional process based on note velocity, chords and key changes.

Keywords: Brain-computer music interface (BCMI), Composition, Electroencephalogram (EEG)
