A new track, “Funky Matters”. An excursion into particle physics #nerdmetal

“Funky Matters” (a play with words) is a song/essay about the discoveries as well as the uncertainties of Particle Physics. Funk and jazz structures and rhythms develop on a metal arrangement, with clean singing and choruses to sing along with (lyrics below).

FUNKY MATTERS
Ancient Greeks figurin’ it all,
Democritos, the atoms, reduction to the call
Fundamental particles, grains of cosmology
Dividing life, by analogy, with our reality

Galilei’s method of induction
(Was) grounded on eye observation
Solitons / got noted / while ridin’ a horse
Newton and Huygens were fighting
Over new tools for understanding
How funky matters / make up the world
Aether was then invented
For light propagation
However the experiments, couldn’t confirm the equation

Einstein eventually, found the solution
Special relativity killed the funky matter
And gave us / Star Trek

Will string theory save us all?
Will we see the curvaton?
Quantum gravity for all!

—————–
CHORUS
Funky matters to all
Come on and join us / at / the / shopping mall
Warping space and time
Enter the quantum loop, and join the ride
—————-

We’re all cool funky matters
Dancing on warping dimensions
We all live under a Calabi-Yau
Supergravity takes the ball
Superpartner of the graviton
Radiative corrections
Are looping in the action
A new bunch of particles was then invented
But nobody has seen them in the Universe
Dark matter remains very dark
Though supersymmetry protects the Higgs

We all need a superpartner!
Will we see the dilaton?
Quantum gravity for all!
—————–
CHORUS 2
Funky matters to all
Come join us / at / the / shopping mall
We’re all cool funky matters
Hunting and searching / the grand unification
—————–
CHORUS 3
We’re all cool funky matters
Particle or wave, (it) doesn’t really matter
Warping space and time
Quantum gravity for all!
