Genetic Music Project

Some months ago I wrote about Alexandra Pajak, a graduate student at the University of Georgia, who released an album of music based on the DNA of HIV. And now here is the Genetic Music Project, an open source genetic art project combining music and science where everyone is art and everyone can be an artist.

Since all genetic information can only come in the language of four nucleotides (A Adenosine C Cytosine G Guanine T Thymidine) it is fairly easily conveyed in musical form. Another way of thinking about it is that each and every one of us and all life on this planet is made of music.

Here you can listen to some samples.
