Hols over…………….?

Hi All,

I return refreshed and ‘eager to go’ from hols in Scotland, also having dined on a Haggis caught in the hills….?  We had a Stag wander nonchalantly through the garden in front of the car coming up the drive!  Its a new season and a bit of software needs to be purchased to keep up to date-Wavelab 7 for the Mac, and an update to Native Instruments Komplete 6 to 7.  Also got to do final mix on Electronic piece…..at last!…..and start to next work on the EP.  Looking forward to the new sounds from Komplete 7 set of synthesizers…..this will help with my obsession of the particles…..and getting them into music….?

Cheers

Music Break!?

Hi All,

Mad summer thinking is here!  Everybody goes on holiday…..and stops work or other….I’ve had a break doing house stuff-painting, repaired house etc.

Looking forward to Autumn-had one or two musical ideas and recorded them on handheld tape.  Continuing with Electronic EP-have to alter some of the mixes when I get back to studio……working on third work today-few bars of drum sounds.  Maybe the recent Perseid meteor showers will inspire some ideas, although the tracks for the EP are essentially Astro-Physics and Particle Physics related.

Looking forward to more results from the Large Hadron Colider to get yet more inspiration………..!

Cheers

Large Hadron Collider at work!

Hi,

The LHC is hard at work and performing well.  Today, two beams were rotated and smashed with a number of good collisions recorded at 2.36 TEV.  Thats high, yet we will see collisions in the future of more than 7 TEV.  All collisions are recorded and computerized and then analyzed for future consideration as prospective candidates for having human analysis performed on them!  Lets hope the Higgs-Boson shows its ugly head!    Carry on the good work!

No Black Hole?

by Paul on December 2, 2009

in Science

Hi All,

Since the successful start-up of the Large Hadron Collider there have been the odd spurious particle collisions.  This has not immediately led to the ‘black hole’ scenario so far.  However we have some way to go till there are full on particle collisions thus proving/disproving the black hole theory.  Hopefully in a short while, we will be up to the full power mode where proton collisions are the norm.  Then and only then will there be potential power to physically prove the generation of a black hole, and then it will probably shudder and die quickly.

With the full power mode of the LHC comes a new area of Physics-we wait with baited breath for the results!

LHC-large Hadron Collider….

Hi All,

Great news-the LHC has started back up and is smashing Protons-even though it is at low energy.  It proves the great Detectors work and the whole machine is basically functional withe beams traveling in opposite directions.  At these low energies, we wont get exotic particles like the  proposed higgs-Boson, until the great machine is ramped up gradually to the final operating voltage.  However the last few days have been great days for Physics!

The energies will be ramped up in stages to achieve a final operating voltage, where we can begin to expect collisions that produce the particles we would expect to see just a few milliseconds after the big-bang!  When this is achieved,  hope to produce rare particles that exist for only a fraction of a second, and that produce that elusive so called God particle!

This particle the Higgs-Boson, is supposed to be related to gravity-the great unknown force in the Universe.  Once this is discovered/proved, then they may be able to understand how matter is ‘held together’ in a manner so elusive.  Currently they think this may be in an all pervasive field throughout the whole Universe!    Lets look forward to the future and all it contains………..

Personally, I am exploring some of these topics through music which you can access through this site…..
