DNA LIVE is an Audio Visual performance, where sound and image are generated from DNA, mRNA and Protein sequences. By translating the DNA, mRNA and Protein sequences of different Genes into MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface), I create MIDI files that are used to generate the sound and control the image variables in a real


time environment.




The Genes that I use for the live performance are Genes involved in the production, transport and reception of human neurotransmitters. DNA and mRNA are composed of four acids each, and their sequences are translated into four MIDI notes each, one note for each acid.
