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.
