Quantum computing is emerging as a promising technology, which is built on the principles of subatomic physics. By the time of writing, fully fledged practical quantum computers are not widely available. But research and development are advancing rapidly. Various software simulators are already available. And a few companies have already started to provide access to quantum hardware via the cloud. These initiatives have enabled experiments with quantum computing to tackle some realistic… 
Music Composition Using Quantum Annealing
With the emergence of quantum computers, a new field of algorithmic music composition has been initiated. The vast majority of previous work focuses on music generation using gate-based quantum
Quantum Computer Music: Foundations and Initial Experiments
This chapter lays the foundations of the new field of Quantum Computer Music, an introduction to algorithmic computer music and methods to program computers to generate music, such as Markov chains and random walks, and presents quantum computing versions of those methods.

Surprisingly, the effect of making the walk slightly less than perfectly quantum can optimize the properties of the quantum walk for algorithmic applications, which forms the basis of a quantum speed up, which can be exploited to solve problems faster.
