That’s a lyric from a tune by a researcher at the Large Hadron Collider’s ATLAS Experiment, a particle physics experiment focused on high-energy collisions. The Large Hadron Collider is no stranger to musical projects, but the work of the ATLAS Resonance project is a bit more involved.
Given the number of scientists and staff involved (over 3000 on ATLAS alone), it shouldn’t be a big surprise that there are enough folks musically inclined to form several groups. They’ve come together to play and help raise funds. The project recently released a double CD and DVD of classical, rock and pop music titled Resonance. The tracks are available for purchase and preview online, or if you’re in the vicinity of CERN (the facility where ATLAS and the Large Hadron Collider are located), in traditional CD format. Here’s a taste:
You can learn more about ATLAS and CERN through the ATLAS YouTube channel. As usual, it appears that the U.K. has most of the press on this mash-up of science and culture, so you North American readers can get the jump on your local friends.
