The sounds of science

John LaCava, creator of at The Rockefeller University, writes about his effort to make science mainstream through music. He explains: "I imagined most people unfamiliar with scientific research could digest it better in the form of something they found familiar and palatable, not in an esoteric, high-art embodiment, but through conventional songs that get your foot tapping and hips moving — music that stands alone on its merits, in a popular style, while also integrating science."
