In collaboration with the Art@CMS project at CERN in Switzerland, the Birmingham Ensemble for Electroacoustic Research (BEER) presents this performance involving the 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 in real time by the ensemble with an aim to creating a result that while beautiful, is both musically and scientifically meaningful.

As part of this event, Nomad, Birmingham Open Media’s cutting edge restaurant partner, will provide catering.

Presented in partnership with the University of Birmingham’s Arts and Science Festival
