Episode: Quantum Sounds- a Live Culture Special with Martha Willette Lewis


Have you ever wondered what a single electron moving through the universe sounds like?
Physicists Kyle Serniak and Luke Burkhart and YQI artist-in-residence Spencer Topel present the world premiere of music created from the measurements of the dynamics inside superconducting quantum devices, the precursors to quantum computers.

This is a live performance from Firehouse 12 as a part of the International Festival of Arts and Ideas.

The 40-minute musical set will be preceded by a 10-minute introduction to quantum physics giving the audience the key concepts to better understand the performance.

for more about Spencer and his project please listen to an in-depth conversation between him, Yale Quantum Institute Manager Florian Carle and myself, up as a podcast available here: https://soundcloud.com/wpkn895/live-culture-51-sounds-so-super-cool?in=wpkn895/sets/live-culture-with-martha
