In everyday experience, objects occupy a specific volume at any given moment in time, like a single note of a melody. Quantum particles delocalize, occupying different parts of space with different intensity, like an infinite chord of an infinite scale. The 'melody' and the 'harmony' together comprise the physical world.

Quantum Windchime was inspired by the physics that governs optically trapped atoms, a setup used in modern experimental physics to understand the subtleties of quantum mechanics. Simulated measurements of an ever-evolving wavefunction become a score: a sonification of motion in the microscopic realm.

Quantum Windchime is an ongoing experiment on the potential of quantumness as an evocative instrument of generative sound.
