There's probably a joke in here about singing the body electric, but we're pressed for time today at Discovery News World Headquarters. We'll put the interns on it.
A team of medical professionals and audio engineers have created the Human Harmonic Project, a sound experiment that "sonically represents the human body at work."
The project mixes elements of ambient electronic music with actual recordings of rhythmic biological processes like heart beats and brain waves.

In fact, the melodies are themselves generated by biological data. Sound engineers converted the four base DNA nucleotides (ACGT) into tones that follow the sequence of a DNA strand. This uptempo melody is blended with a slower melody generated from brain activity - EEG brain waves measured while performing simple tasks.
For drum and bass, as it were, the audio converts the rise and fall of hormone levels along with the (ideally) steady rhythm of heartbeats from an electrocardiograph monitor.
