    The primary goal of this special issue is to address contemporary challenges involved in designing BCI applications related to the creation and experience of art. This involves a low level artistic audification and visualization of brain activity patterns, a higher level musification and animation, and the control of instruments and tools. From 14 submissions initially received, eight articles were selected for publication after a rigorous two-step review process supported by experts in the areas of brain-computer interface, human-computer interaction, and human factors/ergonomics. The papers in the special issue present empirical and survey studies that explore contemporary research challenges involved in designing, developing and evaluating BCI applications related to the creation and experience of art.
