McAfee Professor of Engineering and Department Head Markus Buehler and research scientist Zhao Qin create music by overlaying vibrations of protein structures. The protein synthesizer can be used for educational purposes, allowing participants to create their own sound combinations. It exemplifies how a complex harmony can be reduced to a simple melody and basic notes. Similar to science, any material can be broken down to just a grain and then again to individual atoms. This analogy provides a unique way to communicate science through music. Read more here.
