If the Large Hadron Collider made music, what would it sound like?
Results from the EPP team working on the LHCb experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider have been featured prominently in a new composition entitled "LHChamber music". Commissioned to mark the 60th anniversary of CERN, the piece uses "sonification" to turn data into music, and has been performed by physicists working on the LHC. This story has been picked up by media such as the Guardian newspaper.
The section of the composition related to the Warwick team's result can be found here.
More information on the Warwick LHCb group's research can be found by clicking here.
A previous Warwick Physics sonification project based on turning images into music can be found here.
