This album explores the relationship between acoustically produced music created by human beings and CERN LHC atomic decay files from the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Switzerland. The CERN tracks function here as intermezzi.

For each of these “intermezzi”, the Executive Producer Russell Ward has converted the most basic “sonified“ files in the CERN Sounds Library to midi piano and violin tracks using the native instruments in Apple’s LogicProX. He intends the paired piano-violin tones to represent particle-antiparticle pairs typically produced in the LHC collisions. He has set the key and tempo globally for each track, in order to better match the music performance movements. He has not altered the relative arrangement of tones within the tracks, meaning that he has preserved the original structure of the data.

Tracks on the album alternate between recordings made and previously released by Yarlung Records with the midi tracks, which his friend Brian L. Ruhe and Russell Ward have recorded from a high-resolution audiophile playback system Ward has designed and built for projects like this.
