Listen to experimental music made from experimental physics

Music can be composed from more than your typical instruments.

Lawrence Lee is a musician and physicist at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. He has built the Colliderscope.

With a unique form of synthesis, audio waveforms are designed to show images from the world of experimental particle physics and CERN – painting dynamic pictures directly with sound waveforms using laboratory oscilloscopes.

Converting vintage tech trash from physics experiments of the past into musical instruments, Lawrence Lee creates a wild live audio-visual experience.

Come feel an intuitive connection with the mathematics and science of sound and music, all while learning about the physics of the Large Hadron Collider. Learn about the nature of sound waves and musical synthesizers and how far we can push the limits on sonic creativity.
