What an amazing group of people. There are truly some great minds out there and I can only hope more of them pick up an instrument. The accompanying animation they play alongside the music is pretty cool too.


A new experimental composition from the underground particle smashers at CERN sonifies data gathered over a two-year stretch at the Large Hadron Collider, specifically the ALICE, ATLAS, CMS, and LHCb detectors.

I really enjoyed this and thought others would too. I love when they can convert raw date into sound and make somthing as simple and beauftiful as this. Might not be everyones cup of tea but I really liked it.


There's harp, violin, clarinet, piano, five, guitar, and flute switching at various collision points along the 12-minute piece, with everything coming together around the 10-minute mark. It's quite pleasant, really.

At 10 minutes, I closed my eyes and pictured the instruments around me. As cymbals crashed in my head, new galaxies were being born and I kept a beat by placing a hand over my heart.

I saw you and your thread on another thread, and am so glad I found this. Star and flag to you bringing such light to a sometimes very dark place. We can only hope such as this is being achieved, or will be one day:


As cymbals crashed in my head, new galaxies were being born and I kept a beat by placing a hand over my heart.
And that the possibilities of positivity over the darkness in this one will bear fruit.
