Our take: For the general public, understanding the Higgs Boson may be too complicated, especially since it cannot be felt, seen, tasted and we cannot smell it. But perhaps if we put the data to music, we can hear it and maybe make more sense of it.
The Higgs Boson, in other words, was discovered due to a data anomaly. And now, that data set — and that anomaly — have been set to music. Or, more precisely, music has emerged from that data set and that anomaly.
To arrive at their tune, the team attached a musical note to each data point from the Atlas project, mapping the intervals between values in the original data set to the intervals between notes in the melody. As the values increased or decreased, the pitch of the notes grew — and diminished — accordingly.
