Particle Windchime

Turn a particle detector into a custom instrument with the fundamental interactions of the universe playing that instrument. Using data from the world's particle colliders, each collision event will play its detector, which can be configured exactly how you want. You define your instrument based on how it reacts to the properties of colliding particles and explore the fundamental laws of the universe through sound. Listen carefully and you might discover the Higgs boson!

Note: This demo doesn't yet work via the web. You have to install & run it locally by following the instructions in the README found in the source code.
