This performance by Scott Wilson and Konstantinos Vasilakos (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. In connection with the Dark Matter performance, Altan Çakir, an active researcher at CERN, and member of academic staff at the Department of Physics of the Istanbul Technical University will give a talk about the universe and the LHC, at CERN. The event will open with the debut of the Istanbul Coding Ensemble (ICE), the first live coding ensemble of MIAM that creates improvised electronic music using live coding and networked music systems.
