IT IS NOW POSSIBLE TO PURCHASE SONGS SYNTHESIZED FROM COVID-19’S GENETIC CODE AS NFTs

Through the use of DNA Sonification, the increasingly popular practice of converting data into music continues to tread new ground.

In the age of big data and artificial intelligence, there has been a significant increase in the exploration of nonstandard ways of music creation. Music producers have iterated upon this method in one such data-driven music project termed ViroMusic, and have even begun synthesizing genetic code into songs as a result of their efforts.

This music was created using software that sorted through the contents of COVID-19’s RNA in order to locate strands of data that could be converted into musical notes. Following that, a proprietary algorithm converts the data sets into musical notes, resulting in a melodic progression that might be performed by a musician. DNA Sonification is the term used by ViroMusic to describe this transforming process.

NFTs were created by synthesizing a total of 10,000 sequences into songs, which were subsequently released as digital downloads. Pianos, strings, and ambient synthesizers were used to accompany the production of these tunes by musicians. One listen to the tracks reveals that they are characterized by rambling, entangled, piano-driven melodies that are a common theme throughout the collection, maybe reminiscent of the tangled web of tiny code that exists within the cellular level of life itself.

“The inspiration for this collection came from admiration of the beauty contained inside the code of life,” according to the ViroMusic website. “Even a virus capable of inflicting such devastation is basically built on the same code as every other living thing on the planet, and we hope that this effort will serve to raise awareness of this fact. Our team thought it would be interesting to turn this code into music and see how it would turn out. Hope you find it as disturbing, fascinating, and provoking as we do.”

At the moment, the ViroMusic NFT collection is only available for purchase through Rarible.
