TwoSetViolin; noun.

Two Set Violin is the name of a YouTube channel of two members which has the intent of making the genre of classical more appealing to the audience of generations more recent (as well as) Millennials. The two exclusive performers featured in their videos are Brett Yang and Eddy Chen, who are each virtuoso violinists who have each performed in symphonies several times, have studied at a conservatory, and are qualified as professional soloists and musicians.

The channel was created in some time in 2013, and would later gain the exposure of a total of approximately two and a half million subscribers and approximately five hundred thirty eight million views, and quite frequently perform collaborations with other violinists such as Hillary Hahn and Ray Chen.

Dmitri Shostakovich, noun.

Dmitri Shostakovich was a Russian classical composer who lived through the oppression of the Soviet Union, and lived from September 25, 1906 to August 9th, 1975. He is regarded to have composed pieces which had objected to the tyrannical power of the Soviet Union, which were also known to be some of the most intense in the history of classical, such as his Fifth, Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth symphonies. He had composed pieces on other topics, such as various historical events like the 1905 and the 1918 Russian revolutions.
In the midst of his musical career, he was denounced and had gained a condition of depression that would never recover. He was known by his family to be obsessed with cleanliness and organization, and would frequently synchronize all of the family's clocks. He also had favored playing cards and soccer.
Person 1: Ugh... All classical music is boring and requires no skill. Go listen to Billie Eilish instead.

Person 2: The real leader of depressing music is Shostakovich, go listen to his 11th and come back.

Dmitri Shostakovich, noun.

Dmitri Shostakovich is a Russian classical composer born on the 25th of September 1905 and died on the ninth of August in 1975, and was known for his intense and powerful symphonies, such as his Fifth, Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth.
His works reflect on the terror caused by the Soviet Union and various historical events such as the 1905 and 1918 Russian revolutions, which had led to him being later denounced in his musical career. This initiated depression and henceforth more powerful and hateful symphonies in his later life that would never be cured.
Dmitri Shostakovich would be known by his family for being obsessive in cleanliness and organization, synchronizing clocks and cleaning his apartment nearly daily.

His symphonies are now still known for being more hateful and full of power than the genres of rock, metal, and emo.
Person 1: Ugh... Classical music is so boring. Why don't you listen to Billie Eilish instead?
Person 2: Shosty's 12th obliterates it out of the water. Come back when you've listened to it all.

An atom is a unit of matter composed of a nucleus and electron orbitals. The nucleus is the core of the atom, which contains the majority of the atom's mass. It's held together by the strong force and electromagnetism, and is finally composed of particles called protons and neutrons, which are present in equal amounts (the more of each, the heavier the atom, and thus the weight of the element). The second half of an atom is the orbitals, which consume the most volume in the atom, and are responsible for both the formation of bonds, and the contact forces (such as friction, which prevents you from falling through the ground). The orbitals are held to the nucleus by electromagnetism, and they are essentially an area which contains the electrons.

Protons and neutrons are composite particles, and they are made of quarks held together by gluons. Protons and neutrons are the building blocks of the nucleus.

Protons and neutrons (as well as other composite particles) are made of fundamental particles, which are the smallest forms of matter, held together by gluons. These particular particles are quarks, coming in several "flavours" and colours (or rotations and charge). Gluons bond them together by changing the colours of the quarks, which cause them to be affected by the strong force (or them being attracted to each other).

In summary, atoms are made of nuclei (and electrons), nuclei are made of hadrons or composites, and finally, hadrons are made of gluons and quarks.
The atom is the constituent of most matter, which molecules, and more complex matter are made of.

Atoms are small, but not fundamental in their entirety, and are too small to see.

We know they exist because of several nuclear and electromagnetic experiments.
