From Science To Music: How Academic Scientists Jam With The Universe Using The LHC! [VIDEO]
Creative academic scientists from Anglia Ruskin University, Genevieve Williams and Domenico Vicinanza are currently completing a musical piece from the most unconventional source, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) today.In a performance called "Jamming with the Universe", the pair will present their data-turned music from LHC to the WOMAD Festival later.
Britain's legendary WOMAD (World of Music, Arts and Dance) had recently opened its explosive colors and talents last Thursday, July 28, 2016 and is announced to conclude by tomorrow, July 31, 2016.The event, as its usual tradition, hosts various performing groups from all over the world. For this year, the festival has had accommodated almost 100 artists coming from an estimated 40 countries, the News reported.
Announced highlight for the day, sidetracked by Vołosi and Muzykanci Polish folk bands, is the "Jamming with the Universe" piece by Anglia Ruskin University scientist and musicians, Vicinanza and Williams.What is most interesting about this particular piece by the multi-talented duo is the very raw source of the music they are tapping from- the Large Hadron Collider, TechRadar reported.
Williams, who also happens to be co-director for Cambridge Center for Sport and Exercise Science was the first to analyze the complex movement of the Earth as primary creative commodity. Therefore, he claims to have tracked the peaks and troughs of the LHC data, sonified them into sizable formats and then converted them into high and low musical notes. The results even further surprised the pair beyond their expectations.
During an earlier interview, the pair was seen to wear motion sensors serving as movement recorders. Thus, basing from that prototype tool, it would be very safe to conclude that the pair will be performing heads- on today.
It is very interesting to discover beautiful ways of trans-creating mean scientific data into new forms. Music is one of those ways. And music shall it be, Genevieve Williams of Anglia Ruskin University said to Irish Examiner.
