DNA of Music
The purpose of the project:
create scientific curiosity
We want to communicate scientific notions through music and visual arts so as to draw audience into a process of scientific awareness aimed at creating desire for knowledge.
This is how we hope to kindle in people the desire to search for information based on scientific literature.
The birth of the idea
The musical and figurative research
An algorithm converts DNA fragments into notes which are then harmonized by a composer whose job is to make sure that the result sounds pleasant to the human ear. Then figurative and narrative research comes into play so as to create relevant texts and videos able to awaken the feelings and emotions which can be found in each of us!
The DNA of music project was made possible thanks to the work and site of DNA Sonification of Dr. Mark Temple of Western Sydney University.
At this link it will be possible to listen to his sonification project of the Corona Virus: https://marktemple.bandcamp.com/album/coronacode-music-2
