A Musical Transcription: New London Choir to Sing their Own Genetic Code

http://www.chrismadden.co.uk/genetics/dna-music.gif The New London Chamber Choir are to perform a piece "Allele" on July 13th in which the members of the choir will each sing their own genetic code.

The piece is the result of a collaboration between scientist Andrew Morley and composer Michael Zev Gordon. The inspiration came from a yet-to-be-published experiment designed by Morley wherein the choir members had their DNA sequenced to see if great singers can be distinguished from other members of society on a genetic level.

The genetic codes were then translated into sheet music and make up the basis of the choir piece.
