Quantum Sounds is a symposium in which public and ICFO community can gain knowledge and inspiration from some of the most recent research done in the interface between quantum physics and music composition, data sonification, interactive sound interface, sound programming and audio software development.

The symposium consists of a series of talks, lecture recitals (hybrid between lecture and performance) and Quantum Random Number Generator jam sessions.

In addition, the invitees will visit labs at ICFO and lead themed small group discussions with registered participants.
