The genetic code determining the shape, structure and function of every organism is written in the codex of DNA.  Patterns of 4 bases clustered to form chains of 21 amino acids that form the proteins that govern everything in a process known as translation. 

This process has an architecture that lends itself to further translation into the mathematical principles that underly music and overlaying a musical interpretation onto the fundamental genetic basis that determine the morphology of flax, Linum usitatissimum. 

This film will premiere the digital piece overlaid with the sights and sounds of our linen mills, and an accompanying talk from Dr. Anthony O'Kane, Head of Scientific Affairs.
