Dark Matter: The Sound of New Physics  



Presented by Dr Charles Wang, University of Aberdeen and the Birmingham Ensemble for Electroacoustic Research 


This performance by the Birmingham Ensemble for Electroacoustic Research, created in collaboration with the art@CMS project at CERN in Switzerland, involves the real-time sonification of data streams from the Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest and most complex particle accelerator. Experimental data containing clues towards possible 'new physics' becomes the raw material for improvised music and visualisations programmed by the ensemble with an aim to creating a result that while beautiful, is both musically and scientifically meaningful. 

Date: Thursday 20th September 2018 

Time: 6.30pm 

Venue: Aberdeen Science Centre, 179 Constitution Street, Aberdeen, AB24 5TU 

Cost: £4, £3 concession
