    Visible Sounds and DNA Songs with Composer Stuart Mitchell

    in Paranormal

    Stuart Mitchell was born in Edinburgh and began to learn the piano at the age of five. His father is the jazz pianist and composer Thomas J. Mitchell, and this influence and guidance has been invaluable to Stuart's music. By the time he was 15, Stuart had discovered a whole new world of technology in keyboard synthesis which interested him greatly and this led to developing new sound textures and performance abilities to his music. In 1986, he signed his first record deal with Red Bus Records, London, for five years as a producer and writer. 2005 saw Stuart's first major classical CD release of his score Seven Wonder Suite for Orchestra, performed by The Prague Symphony Orchestra, The Kuhn Mixed choir and conducted by Mario Klemens. Stuart's work in cymatics, which is the study of visible sound and vibration, allowed him to break the code of the cubes carved in the ceiling of Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland and play the ancient song preserved there for hundreds of years. He also has developed a method of interpreting DNA into musical notes which make up a unique song encoded in every living thing. Stuart was commissioned to translate a MTDNA sequence of Ludwig Van Beethoven's ancestry and produced a composition called Ludwig's Last Song. Stuart's websites are:
