Eduardo R. Miranda

"... a formidable composer"

- Wire -

"If the goal is to push music-making beyond conventional bounds, Miranda and his colleagues must surely have succeeded."

MIT Technology Review -

"Today marks a fascinating musical first ... a performance of the world's first Brain-Computer Music Interface (BCMI) quartet."

- The Observer -


Welcome to my blog-like webpage!

I am a composer working at the crossroads of music and science. My music is informed and inspired by my research into Artificial Intelligence (AI) in significant ways. I have composed music for symphonic orchestras, chamber groups, solo instruments - with and without live electronics - and electroacoustic music.

I have had the honour of hearing my music at festivals and concerts worldwide, played by renowned performers and ensembles such as Bergersen String Quartet, Leo String Quartet (from the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra), Sond'Ar-te Electric Ensemble (Portugal), Chamber Group of Scotland, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra and Ten Tors Orchestra, to cite but a few. In addition to concert music, I have composed for theatre and contemporary dance.

My new book, Thinking Music, telling the inside story to my choral and orchestral work Sound to Sea, is now available. Click on the picture of the cover below for more information.

In 2011-2012 I was composer-in-residence at the Science Museum, London, working with Lottolab Studio. Please, click on the icons below for more information.


Previous residencies include: CCMIX (Centre de Création Musicale Iannis Xenakis, Paris, France), IMEB (Institut International de Musique Electroacoustique de Bourges, France), Fundació Phonos (Barcelona, Spain), Luciano Berio's Centro Tempo Reale (Florence, Italy), Banff Center (Banff, Canada), IRCAM (Paris, France) and NOTAM (Oslo, Norway).

I had the opportunity to discuss my work on AI in music composition in The Forum - broadcast by BBC World Service - with BBC diplomatic correspondent, Bridget Kendall, UCL's cell therapy maverick, Prof Chris Mason, and MIT's economist, Prof Esther Duflo.

Biocomputer Music

piano and biocomputer

"It is perhaps the unlikeliest duet in musical history."
(The Independent, 09-Feb-15)

"... John Cage's dream realized."
(BBC News, 27-Feb-15)

"Miranda has created something truly unique ..."
(Palatinate, 05-Mar-15)

"... the first piece of music composed for an interactive biosystem."
(BBC Focus Magazine,  02-Mar-15)

Biocomputer Music was a new commission for Peninsula Arts Contemporary Music Festival 2015, where I explored the potential of the biocomputer.

The biocomputer is an unprecedented interactive musical computer built in my research laboratory at ICCMR (Plymouth University), based on living organic components (Physarum polycephalum) cultured on a circuit board.  I believe this is the first biocomputer system designed for a musical application and I am excited to be the first composer ever to experiment and compose with it.

Corpus Callosum

chamber orchestra and film

"... it’s quite literally a very cerebral performance."
(Drowned in Sound, 09-Mar-15)

Corpus callosum is the part of the brain that connects the left and right hemispheres of our brain and facilitates communication between them. I divided the ensemble to become the left hemisphere, associated with a scientifically orientated knowledge of the world, and the right hemisphere, associated with an artistically orientated interpretation of the world. Just as the brain’s right and left hemispheres work together and are highly connected, the Corpus Callosum composition develops as a dialogue between these two realms.

The composition uses musical materials taken from Beethoven’s 7th symphony and brain scanning data, taken from my own brain while I listened to Beethoven's symphony in an fMRI scanner. The performance is accompanied by a movie by Norwegian video artist Ellen Roed representating the musical dialogue between the brain's left and right hemispheres.

Corpus Callosum involved the assistance of a number of partners in the USA, France and Norway. The brain scans were taken at New York University with the assistance of Zoran Josipovic and Dan Lloyd. Software for computer-aided composition was developed with Duncan Williams at ICCMR in Plymouth and Anders Vinjar at NOTAM (Norwegian Centre for Technology in Music and the Arts) in Oslo, with support from PNEK (Production Network for Electronic Art, Norway). Software for converting brain scans into music was developed with Philippe Esling at IRCAM (Institute for Research in Acoustics and Music) in Paris.

In the run-up for the premiere at Peninsula Arts Contemporary Music Festival 2015, I wrote an article for Gramophone,  discussing the piece in more detail. (Click on the icon below to read the article.)

Activating Memory

string quartet and BCMI quartet

"Today marks a fascinating musical first: Prof Eduardo Miranda and colleagues will showcase a performance by the world's first Brain-Computer Music Interface (BCMI) quartet"

(The Observer, 09-Feb-14)

" ... transformational for someone who can't move but can now make music."

(The San Diego Union-Tribute, 26-Sep-15)

Activating Memory is an innovative experimental composition for 8 performers: a string quartet and BCMI quartet. BCMI stands for Brain Computer Music Interface.

The BCMI quartet involves four persons wearing a brain cap furnished with electrodes to read information from the brain of 4 persons. I teamed up with g.tec, manufacturer of biomedical technology, and Joel Eaton at ICCMR, to design an extraordinary machine that converts brain information into musical scores.

During the performance, the BCMI quartet generates musical scores to be performed by the string quartet in real-time. Each member of the BCMI quartet generates a part for a musician of the string quartet.

extraordinary Bergersen String Quartet.

In the run-up for the concert at Peninsula Arts Contemporary Music Festival, in February 2014, I wrote an article for Brain World on the interplay between music and brain sciences (Click on the icon below to read the article.)

Activating Memory has been subsequently performed at a number of music festivals, including MusicTech Fest at LSO St Luke's in London, 11th International Symposium on Computer Music Multidisciplinary Research in Plymouth and
Mainly Mozart in San Diego (USA).

I am very pleased with the success of an unprecedented concert held at the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability, in London, in July 2015. For this occasion, 4 severely motor-impaired patients teamed up with a string quartet for form the Paramusical Ensemble. Patients and the quartet had the opportunity to make music together performing Activating Memory.

"[Prof Miranda's] research into the evolution of music may change the way in which we create music"
- New Electronics -

My research interests and expertise include: composition (including algorithmic,  computer-aided and electroacoustic), sound synthesis, new musical interfaces, expressive music performance (by machines), brain-computer music interfacing, evolutionary computer music, music neurotechnology, unconventional computation (for music technology) and artificial intelligence.

I am Professor of Computer Music with Plymouth University in England and I am affiliated to UFRGS's Computer Music Lab in Brazil. I was appointed DAAD Edgard-Varese-Gastprofessur at Technische Universität Berlin and Research Fellow at the Staatliches Institut für Musikforschung (Museum of Musical Instruments, Berlin Philharmonic).

I am proud of the impact of my research into brain-computer music interfacing (or BCMI) for people with severe physical disabilities, which was the topic of a key note I gave at the international conference on "Music Technology: Solutions to Challenges", held at the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability, in London.  Subsequently I demonstrated the technology in a public concert with severely motor-impaired patients; the first ever concert of this kind.

The impact of this research has been widely reported by the international media. Click othe logos to read a selected sample available on-line:

My research into modelling the evolution of music using robots has been in the news all over. The singing robots that learn how to sing melodies by babbling to each other have caught people's imagination. See short article We, Robots in Reason, published in the USA.

In 2011 I won the Vice-Chancellor's World Class Research Award at Plymouth University for my "outstanding contribution to the research and outward-facing agenda" of the institution.
