Suspend belief for a second, because what you're about to read sounds a little nuts. The Kreutzer Quartet have recorded new music into DNA that will be suspended in soap bubbles. Now for the scientific part… Dr Nick Goldman from the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) has been working with visual artist Charlotte Jarvis to encode DNA with the KQ's new composition for string quartet, which loosely follows the traditional form of a concerto. This will then be suspended within soap bubbles in silent installations that you can see at Dilston Grove until July 5. A video projection will show the quartet performing in the server room of the EBI and on June 12 the KQ will play live at the exhibition, followed by a discussion (6.30-8.30pm).
