The Beautiful Sounds of Swine Flu



I’m totally vibing out right now to the new single “Swine Flu Hemagglutinin” by Stephen Zielinski. Peep the song here.

The dude linked each amino acid to an instrument, then used a computer algorithm to turn it into a song.

Amino acids with side chains that are neither aromatic not aliphatic control the piano and organ: the nine non-hydrophobics the piano, and the four hydrophobics the organ. The three amino acids with aliphatic side chains control the low synthesizer, while the four with aromatics control the percussion.

 Check out his website to see how it was put together.
