The Analytical Engine
The Analytical Engine was a hypothetical computer that she wrote code for which could calculate a series of numbers called Bernoulli Numbers. She also realised that it may be able to process other things such as music. I have quoted her below.
"The Analytical Engine might act upon other things besides number, were objects found whose mutual fundamental relations could be expressed by those of the abstract science of operations, and which should be also susceptible of adaptations to the action of the operating notation and mechanism of the engine...
Supposing, for instance, that the fundamental relations of pitched sounds in the science of harmony and of musical composition were susceptible of such expression and adaptations, the engine might compose elaborate and scientific pieces of music of any degree of complexity or extent."
