Higgs Boson as sound

Following on from the Higgs Boson news, a friend sent me this link.  The Higgs Boson data has been transcribed as music.
 

The original post on Discovery News describes the music this way:
"'As soon as the announcement (of the discovery) was made, we begun working on the sonification of the experimental data,' Domenico Vicinanza, product manager at Dante (Delivery of Advanced Network Technology to Europe), Cambridge, UK, told Discovery News...'Sonification worked by attaching a musical note to each data. So, when you hear the resulting melody you really are hearing the data,' Vicinanza said."


Be sure to click over to the Discovery page, and read the whole article.
