The Music of CERN

Thanks to Nathan:

This short audio clip was composed by taking particle data from the Large Hadron Collider at CERN and formatting it so that it could be played through a computer. Each sound is made up of three pieces of data, which could correspond to a particles size, energy, the length of its life. This kind of music can be made with any sort of spectroscopy.
