This Sounds Like Science: Quantum Science Explained Through The Electric Guitar

14 August @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm AEST

So much about music stems from science, be it composition, sound creation, sound manipulation or listening.

In this free lunchtime series, leading Australian researchers present the science behind music, paired with demonstrations and performances by local musicians. This Sounds Like Science is co-curated with Inspiring Australia, the national strategy for community engagement with the sciences.

QUANTUM SCIENCE EXPLAINED THROUGH THE ELECTRIC GUITAR

With the help of an electric guitar, Professor of Quantum Physics at the University of Sydney, David Reilly, demonstrates some of the connections between musical concepts and our most successful theory of reality, including the processing of quantum information that may form the basis of powerful future computers.

David Reilly is Professor of Quantum Physics at the University of Sydney. His research explores the bizarre aspects of quantum mechanics and nanoscience in an effort to harness them for the construction of new technologies. As an experimental physicist, David directs the quantum nanoscience laboratory whose mission is to scale up quantum devices to construct powerful, multicomponent quantum machines. Prior to establishing his laboratory and research group, David was a postdoctoral research scientist at Harvard University. He holds a Ph.D from the University of New South Wales.
