Eduardo R. Miranda

I am a composer and Artificial Intelligence scientist. Currently I am Professor of Computer Music at Plymouth University, where I lead the Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research (ICCMR).

My music has been commissioned, performed and broadcasted worldwide by ensembles such as Chamber Group of Scotland, BBC Concert Orchestra and Ten Tors Orchestra. I have received a number of awards and prizes for my work, including the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship in Composition in New York, and most recently the Vice-Chancellor's World Class Research Award at Plymouth University in the UK for my contribution to scientific research internationally.

My research includes modelling the evolution of music and understanding how the human brain processes music. I am currently developing new computers (and musical systems) based on biological media. I believe that future computing technology will increasingly interface directly with our bodies (e.g., with the nervous system) and media other than silicon media will be increasingly harnessed to act as computers (e.g., bacteria-based computing).

For more information, please refer to my webpage. Samples of my music are available on SoundCloud.

Footage from concerts and short documentaries are available through my Vimeo channel.
