I made this video back in 2005 for the S3 Project (Sights and Sounds of Science), organized by the Materials Research Center of the University of Chicago. I combined some video shot inside the old building of the James Frank Institute, with renderings of a “piano-molecule” modeled in 3D. The music comes from the Life Music CD by J. Dunn and M. A. Clark. They composed all the songs in this CD by “sonifying” the amino acid sequences of different proteins, using a correspondence between the 20-letter amino acid code and the musical scale.
