Collision Theory - Tune of the day

ping pong balls :-)

I love both electro music and orchestral film music so I wanted to put a piece together that incorporated the sounds of both within the genre of dubstep... here goes!

Collision theory (proposed by Max Trautz and William Lewis in 1916 and 1918) is used to predict the rates of chemical reactions, particularly for gases. The collision theory is based on the assumption that for a reaction to occur it is necessary for the reacting elements (atoms or molecules) to come together or collide with one another. Only a certain fraction of the total collisions cause chemical change; these are called successful collisions.

I've really enjoyed making this piece which I expect will be the first of many such experiments.
