After I was sent raw sounds of the Large Hadron Collider from CERN by the audio engineer Daniel Deboy I knew I would need to do a lot more to make something out of this audio.
I started work to develop some of the sounds further using a few different sampling and synthesis methods so they could be used in a more musical way (A more detailed write up will come later). Combining the developed sounds with the raw sounds was the way to go. The only rule was to use nothing but the raw audio as the basis for all the sounds used.
During this time I came across the work of Arthur M Young. Young was a thinker, philosopher and also the inventor of the Bell Helicopter.
Arthur M Young had thoughts on the argument that the human soul lives on after death and cannot be destroyed. Youngs thoughts were captured on film by the filmmaker, producer, director and writer Arthur Bloch. This was the perfect dialogue to go with the final CERN piece (number 5).
What holds the universe together?
What holds the human soul together?
