A new iPhone app called GeneGroove takes the idea of music personalisation into the realms of science fiction. The app was released this week by a company called Portable Genomics, and taps into data from US genetic testing service 23andme. “After uploading your 23andMe raw data onto your iPhone via iTunes, GeneGroove will analyze your genome informations and generate a unique identifier key,” explains GeneGroove’s App Store description. “This key, called the GeNumber, will embed the uniqueness of your genome data while keeping your privacy safe, and will be used by GeneGroove to generate your music melody… It will be used in upcoming Portable Genomics applications to mix and remix music, manipulate sounds and share your art with your friends and family.”
