XChromosome, layer #1

X-Chromosome, Y-Chromosome, Open Source Audio, PD-Pure Data, computer synthesized sound, Live-Internet data feed, the Human Genome.

A computer generated audio feed of live Internet data from the National Institute of Health's sequence of the Human Genome. This live feed of sequenced data will be filtering the X and Y Chromosomes that determine gender at a scientific/bio-informatic level. AC and TG are the symbols used to represent the base pairs present in actual dna and the chromosomes that comprise dna. When sequenced, these base pairs represent '2-bit' information. We use this '2-bit' information as acoustic, structural bricks (modules) which will then be assembled to generate sonic life-forms.
