The universe plays music to our ears.
What is the sound of Dancing Black Holes and Gravity waves?
What is the sound of the Higgs Boson discovery?
What is the power of Physics Asymmetry, and how is this connected to Mozart?
How did the universe come to be?
On these questions and others, we will try to answer with a universal language: MUSIC.

Prof. Eilam GrossEilam Gross is a Professor of Physics at Weizmann Institute of Science and a lecturer at the African School of Fundamental Physics and Applications (ASP). Eilam was born in Tel Aviv. After completing his army service in an elite communications unit, he left for New York to study music. There he came across a cult book, The Tao of Physics, which prompted him to come back to Israel and study physics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His master's thesis at the Weizmann Institute was written on string theory, after which he "deserted" theoretical work for experimental high-energy physics. In the last twenty years, Professor Gross has devoted his scientific career to the search for the Higgs particle and its discovery. He was ATLAS  statistical data analysis forum convener where he took a major part in developing the statistical methods used for search and discovery. He was then ATLAS Higgs convener at the time of the discovery of the Higgs Boson.
