“The great mystery” obtained from the process of sonification of the Higgs Boson, also known as

"God particle", theorized in 1964 by Peter Higgs and detected for the first time in 2012 with the experiments conducted by CERN. With her sound work Irene Dionisio reflects on the possibility of translating into an artistic language the conjunction between scientific research- technological and spiritual. The result is a sound composition with tones at times  and comic traits showing the limits of human translation and his gaze.
