Physicists of the ATLAS LHC detector have recorded a music album

The special epistemological status of science and modern physics

Physicists working on one of the detectors of the Large Hadron Collider – the ATLAS detector – have recorded and released a music album, RIA Novosti reports with reference to the CERN press service.

The double album Resonance was released by Neutralino Records, the ATLAS collaboration s own record label, named after a hypothetical particle that possibly makes up dark matter.

Two CDs contain compositions by 19 musicians playing in a variety of styles – from orthodox classics, Bach and Mozart, to blues and jazz compositions.

In particular, the head of the ATLAS experiment, Fabiola Gianotti, performed a piano piece for the album, and her colleague Genevieve Steele performed the composition on a harp made by her physicist father, who plays in the psycho-rock band The Fullerenes.

The ATLAS detector is one of the four main and largest detectors of the Large Hadron Collider. More than 3 thousand physicists are participating in this experiment.

The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) has a rich musical tradition. For example, on the eve of the launch of the Large Hadron Collider, physicists recorded a “collider-rap”, in which the principles of operation and tasks of the accelerator were described in an intelligible form. Since the 1990s, CERN has had a parody pop group Les Horribles Cernettes, which has recorded the Collider album with the compositions Liquid Nitrogen, Strong Interaction, Microwave Love and Every Proton of You.
