In honor of the 20th anniversary of their most successful album, the Bristol group
Massive Attack turned for help to the German professor Robert Grass in the implementation of a very unusual task.
The front-men group, Robert Del Naya, suggested that audio information can be translated into a genetic code. As it was possible to realize in the laboratory of Turbobeads company in Zurich
The encoding of Teardrop ^ composition has been successfully completed, the fragment of which can be heard on the laboratory’s website.
The entire encoding process will be completed in a couple of months.
The album had to be compressed to a size of 15 mb, after which it was transferred to the form of biological information.
As a result, 5000 nanoparticles with information encrypted inside will be placed in a special bottle of water, which will allow them to be stored in this state for about a thousand years. At any time, the particles can be extracted, decrypted and lost on the computer.
The album Massive Attack was the first ever musical album recorded on a DNA molecule.
There is a document that has been preserved in this way in Zurich. They became the Federal Charter of 1921, which formed the basis for the formation of the Swiss Confederation.
