Experimental music from experimental physics, ColliderScope is a musical project of Lawrence Lee, a Postdoctoral Fellow working at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. With a unique form of audio synthesis, waveforms are designed to show images from the world of experimental particle physics — painting dynamic pictures directly with sound using a laboratory oscilloscope by engineering advanced Lissajous figures. Converting scrapped vintage technology from physics experiments of the past into musical instruments, Dr. Lee creates a live audio-visual experience, founded on the science and math that power our universe.
