Protein music

Anyone else ever heard of this? It's very interesting. Also sometimes known as DNA music.

It's the amino acid sequence of a protein translated into music based on a multitude of structural and physicochemical properties of the amino acids. It could've sounded random, or like anything, but it's musical! I played some to my daughter last night and she said it's extremely simillar to a minimalist composition she's doing for her GCSEs.

Makes me wonder if, in music, we hear an echo of something primordal, something at the very core of our own being. My baby dances to music, in her own cute little way. No-one taught her to do it, so why does she feel compelled to move to it? Hmm.

There are some examples on this page, click on the speaker icon next to the track listing.
