Alan Kay has always had a love for music and in fact often found himself thinking in terms of a musician when he was designing computers and computer code. Alan is a computer science pioneer who spent a decade at the famed Xerox PARC helping to design and engineer personal computers, computer code and object-oriented programing. His passion for science and music makes him the ideal person to explain how computers can be created to make music, a theme that has remained a key area of study and pursuit for Alan during his long and successful career.
