So ….? Maybe you are thinking, “new music happens every day!” Well, this new piece is something a little different – an amazing collaboration between science and art. Scientists and composers have produced a new choral work in which performers sing parts of their own genetic code.  The piece is called Allele, and it symbolizes a new way to look at genes – musically.
