Spatial Sonification of the Higgs Boson Decay
Assembly & Set-Up
Conceptual Guidelines
Use and Care
The installation Spatial Soni cation of the Higgs Boson Decay is conceived as an interactive 3D sound experience embedded in a virtual space linked to the physical space of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) particle accelerator built in the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) facilities.
The installation is conceived as an immersive trip through which the user explores in an auditory way the deepness of the elements that shape the origin and constitution of the universe. Through this sound set up we put into play a di erent sensoperceptive way which through humans try to grasp some knowledge of reality.
Mainly two topics are entangled within the auditory experience: a reconstruction of sounds taken from soni cation models created in the LHCSound project, and a mixed reality sound spatialization device connected to SPASM 4 Live software developed at V2 Institute for the Unstable Media.
