“Hadrons are like a crash in a guitar shop, and clusters are like a conductor farting whilst directing a full orchestra thus making an unholy racket.”
“Hadronization sounds like opening a difficult bag of potato chips. When they hit the detector I imagine the sound in the movie War Games when a missile hits a city (a low computer generated tone).”
“Hadronic showers sound like a man carrying 12 pints on a tray falling down a long flight of stairs – including the swearing.”
“J/Psi’s are tings on a high triangle.”
“Electrons go twang, like a very high note on an acoustic guitar. Muons are a much deeper twang.”
“Fermions sound like wind chimes, the heavier the mass the lower the tone.”
This is all pretty interesting to me in my mission to sonify the ATLAS data output. I’d be interested to hear about more of these particle-sound associations.
