John Dunn and Mary Anne Clark used Kyma to help realize an entire CD of music "based" (no pun intended) on DNA sequences! Featured proteins include beta-globin sequences from human, whale, bat and echidna, the protein in spider's silk, lysozyme C from human, echidna, mouse and green monkey, and collagen. Ranging in style from a quasi-renaissance motet with a woman's voice chanting the names of amino acids, to a complex imaginary landscape based on Collagen, this well-engineered CD can be heard in Real Audio on the web or purchased as a one-off CD-R signed by the two composers.
