Computers are omnipresent in almost every aspect of music today.
Quantum computing – computer technology that are based on quantum theory principles allowing computers to operate at atomic or subatomic levels – is advancing rapidly but to date, musicians are not engaging with this technology. Quantum computing is reserved for specialist laboratories.
This project will develop Qutune, a bespoke Quantum Computing programming toolbox for musician that bridges this gap and allows early adopters to use quantum computing in their music.
Led by Eduardo Miranda, Professor in Computer Music and head of the University’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research (ICCMR), he is pioneering this approach worldwide.
