Abstract

In the present paper we employ sonification and simple electroacoustic composition techniques to represent simulated controlled quantum dynamics. We suggest an intuitive sonification process in order to represent acoustically and musically an important quantum phenomenon that is used in quantum computation. A interesting problem in this field has been to understand why states floats back and forth between a number of configurations, seemingly unguided, and yet almost miraculously reach target eventually. Through Parameter-Mapping-Sonification we explore the dynamics of this microscopic peculiar system. In our current research, our sonification choices have both a functional and an aesthetic goal.
