On the 5th March 2020 a concert of biologically-inspired music was organised at the University of Edinburgh. The performers were researchers in the fields of Biological Sciences and/or Music. Their instruments were computer programming languages and biological data. The concert was open to members of the general public, enjoying a healthy mix of inspiration, entertainment, and bemusement. Nick's contribution was the Music & Mutation work - pieces written based on gene sequences used in MIB research.
