Paralysed man makes music through brainwaves

A man who has been paralysed for seven years, has created music by manipulating his brain waves.

Andy Walker, from Milnrow, can't move his arms or legs after breaking his spine in a diving accident. However, a pioneering project has allowed him to use his mind as an instrument.

Experts in brain signal technology helped Andy to turn his emotions into sound waves, which were then converted into music.

The tune is now being sold as a single, with proceeds going to a charity that helps disabled people to have greater independence.
