The Sound of Scent

Fascinating short documentary with composer Stuart Mitchell in Edinburgh, who dedicated the past 10 years of his life to translating the DNA codes of plants into musical frequencies. The film focuses on the code that's responsible for the scent of rose. The code is than arranged for accustic instruments - in this case the composer felt that the scent of rose is most accurately portrayed by the sound of flute.
Thank you to Shelly Waddington for the hint!
