The CBBO : CERN BIG BANG ORCHESTRA was formed by Jean-François Mathieu following his proposal to write a composition for the 50th Birtday of CERN.
 
CBBO is a multicultural Orchestra of 55 musicians whose members represent a diversity of musical aesthetics. The CBBO Musicians are mostly members of the different CERN music clubs and of the Ensemble de Jazz de Divonne.
 

 
The first concert took place on 17 September on the CERN site in a very original space called the Aquarium in the center of the main building.

Au fil des étoiles prend racine dans le concept d’une conférence. Partant d’un contenu scientifique riche et rigoureux mais néanmoins abordable pour chacun, cette création n’a pourtant rien d’une conférence classique. Des images vertigineuses et fascinantes viennent ponctuer et souligner les propos de l’orateur, auxquels se superpose le jeu d’une acrobate et d’un musicien.
 
 
ACCELERATION / CELEBRATION
the CBBO Cern Big Bang Orchestra in concert
duration : 40 minutes
 
Musical composition and direction : Jean-François Mathieu
Played by the CERN BIG BANG ORCHESTRA 55 musicians featuring "The Invisible Neutrino"
Administration : La Diamanterie Productions
 
The composition develops over three movements for a duration of about 30 minutes, commencing with a festive birthday song that celebrates the Anniversary in a kaleidoscope of vocal juxtapositions, surging to a lyrical peak in the melodious second movement where rhythm and intensity swell in dizzying power to express the inexorable advancement of science and progress for humanity, and ending in an upbeat, psychedelic third movement that cites various CERN machines, emulates the acceleration of particles and concludes with an explosive evocation of the Big Bang.
To illustrate this journey towards knowledge and playing side by side at the center of the stage are a didgeridoo, one of the most ancient musical instruments on Earth representing the primordial sound and a synthesizer guitar, summing up several breakthroughs in technology and expressing brand new discoveries. The young rapper appearing in the third movement is a symbol of the transmission of knowledge from one generation to another.
