Comment Re:Been done before? - Genome music (Score 1) 165

A guy did something similar with the human genome, translating sequences into music:
http://www.toddbarton.com/index2.asp

From Barton's website:
"One night in the studio I downloaded some of the DNA data sequence from the International Genome Project website. On a whim I entered the first couple of lines from the sequence for chromosome 1 into my midi sequencer, Xx. The resulting rhythmic and pitch pattern seized my musical imagination and I began making very simple expansions and contractions of the pattern, careful not to disturb the basic relationships."

It sounds kinda freaky, actually, but I've heard a lot worse at open mic night...
