The world premiere of Irish composer Deidre Gribbin's 'Hearing your Genes Evolve' (a string quartet based on DNA coding) is performed by the Smith Quartet. Plus, Kevin Volans's 'Hunting: Gathering'.
(Note: at 5.30pm, a pre-concert talk: 'Genetic Science and Music/Genetics Ethics'. Dr Sarah Teichmann chats to Deirdre Gribbin. They explain the sequences, structures and interactions that occur in genetics and how they can be conveyed through sound.)
(The composer was a Leverhulme Trust Resident artist at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge.)
