On this website you will find a small collection of works, papers, and software that are some of the contributions from the Adventures in Quantumland research project. This project is being pursued by Omar Costa Hamido as the main research focus of his PhD in Music with emphasis in Integrated Composition, Improvisation, and Technology, at University of California, Irvine. Omar is a performer-composer-technologist and you can learn more about him here. Quantumland explores the implications of emerging paradigms in Quantum Computing (QC) for new modes of artistic creation. This research is sponsored by IBM and Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia.
