HUMAN DNA SET TO MUSIC
soundtrack of our lives
Finding musical elements in nature--the so-called "music of the spheres"--has been a pursuit since the time of Pythagoras and earlier. Certainly, the popularity of new age CDs that feature the sounds of flowing water, forest creatures, etc., taps into this.

Keeping with this theme, scientists in Spain have managed to put the human DNA sequence to music.

This sounds like a neat piece of work. I'd like to hear it sometime.
