Musical Swine Flu!

This does exactly what it says on the tin.  Stephan Zielinski has set swine flu to music:

The algorithm I used is a bit complicated, but just in case you’re curious: since the gene is expressed as a surface protein antibodies can sense, it’s considered as a string of amino acids.  Each beat corresponds to one amino acid, and the piece is in 3/4 time, so each six measures would correspond to five turns around the alpha structure.

I have next to no idea what any of this means.  But it looks impressive.

 

UPDATE, 30.iv.09: Stop the internet.  We have a winner.
