Thanks to personal genetics company 23andMe, and a project out of their new labs, you’ll be able to find out. The company allows you to take a swab of your saliva and send it in for a full report on your DNA. The project comes from 23andMe’s Mark Ackerley, who happens to be a classically trained composer from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. He built an algorithm that goes through your genetic bits and creates a completely personal and unique “melody” out of them.
It takes an artist like Björk to turn the complex process of DNA replication and transcription into something as simple and beautiful as a pop song. For the video of her song “Hollow,” from last year’s app-based album Biophilia, Björk has collaborated with biomedical animator Drew Berry to create a partly-scientific representation of the haunting song.
