IKLECTIK TALKS – #2
Making Music with Quantum Computing
Tuesday 28 June 2022 | 4:30pm [doors] | 5pm – 8:30pm
Tickets: £6 General Admission https://buytickets.at/iklectik/701005
We are pleased to announce the second of our series of IKLECTIK TALKS focusing on music, art and new technology.
New quantum computing technology is emerging as an interesting avenue for musicians to explore creatively. Prof Eduardo Miranda (Plymouth University) joined by his research assistant Omar Costa Hamido leads a 3-hour event diving into quantum computing for music and programming tools and systems that are currently being developed at the University of Plymouth’s ICCMR, as part of the QuTune project.
Practical examples of compositions and demonstrations will also be shown. The session will conclude with a roundtable discussion, where we invite musicians, technology enthusiasts and researchers to contribute with their questions on this fascinating field.
We invite students, researchers and artists who would like to learn more about making music with quantum computing to be a part of the debate with their enquiries, questions and share their own research and works.
Requirements for the workshop
For the practical session, it would be beneficial for the attendees to bring their own laptops and have Max/MSP installed.

Eduardo’s distinctive music is informed by his background as a classically trained composer and Artificial Intelligence (AI) scientist. He is known for his research in brain-computer music interfacing and is pioneering investigation into quantum computing for music. Currently, he is a Professor of Computer Music at the University of Plymouth, UK, where he leads the Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research (ICCMR). His opera ‘Lampedusa’, composed with sonifications of subatomic particle collisions was recently premiered by BBC Singers.
