Computers have evolved to become an essential part of the music industry: in the last century, musical composition, instrumentation, distribution and consumption have all been impacted by advances in computer technology.

Quantum computing offers the potential for a further, unprecedented technological leap. As this new era of computing looms, we must consider the ways that technological developments may disrupt the music industry. Thus, a new field of research and development is emerging: Quantum Computer Music. The unprecedented book by Springer Publishing introduces the fundamentals of quantum computing for musicians and the latest developments by pioneering practitioners.
