DNA Music Process
What is the history DNA music?
DNA music has been developed since the early 1970's when Geneticists found it easier to read the long strands of DNA code by assigning musical pitches to the 22 Amino Acids. This allowed them to compare DNA, look for mutations, and reverse engineer these tones back into proteins. This opened the way for more musical scientists to develop the system further until today where DNA music is now being taken very seriously by composers and musicians as a new form and medium of the music industry.
Prof. Susumu Ohno (of Beckman Research Institute of the City of Hope, who died on January 13, 2000, at the age of 71) proposed years ago that the repetition process governs both the musical composition and the DNA sequence construction . see this paper by Ohno in Immunogenetics (1986) titled: "The all pervasive principle of repetitious recurrence governs not only coding sequence construction but also human endeavor in musical composition".
[Video] DNA Music Lecture Video with David Deamer Professor of Chemistry, UC Santa Cruz
Dr. David W. Deamer is professor of
Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of
California, Santa Cruz. Dr. Deamer has a life-long
interest in the relation between art and science, and
was among the first to recognize that musical patterns
could be translated from base sequences in DNA. He has
collaborated with Susan Alexjander, a Santa Cruz
musician/composer, in publishing several tapes and CDs
of DNA music.
Regular patterns and sequences of notes exist throughout music, from the pitches of a scale to the rhythms of a song. The same goes for the building blocks of life. Patterns govern the way molecules fit together to construct a DNA molecule or a protein strand. When these patterns are "translated" into the patterns of music, some of them contain very interesting melodies and rhythms. DNA music is a new and unique way of experiencing the complexity of life.
The translation of DNA code into
music is a lengthy process, but the final production results in
music of great beauty and expression. We always put the music
style, instrumentation and overall 'feel' in the hands of our
clients and every DNA song has our clients own musical
preferences embeded in the music itself.
Please enjoy these DNA music samples of some of our most recent clients.
