DWS129: Daitse – DNA

“Synths sculpted from blocks of biochemical noise. Sampling the molecular basis of life: DNA. Experimental ambient gore.

These songs were made by transforming the NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) spectra of the building blocks of DNA –adenine, guanine, cytosine and thymine- into audiovisual spectrograms. The spectrograms were then ‘sculpted’ into a kind of texture and used as blueprints.”
