Previously electroencephalogram (EEG) based BCI (Brain Control Interface) is very complicated for the homebased users. This paper presents a pilot study on the portable EEG-based BCI system to find the music effect relation between music genres and human’s attention and meditation. Music genres for various background music styles are analyzed for the experiment, to obtain the subjects’ EEG data with various attention and meditation levels. Finally we found that the classical symphonic music makes subjects obtain the most significant response, and the proposed method can be adopted for the fields of music healing, education, and entertainment, hopefully.
