NIMBioS: Science Songwriter Residency

I doubt I could skip out of my non-scientific day job for a month, but man, I sure want to now:

NIMBioS is sponsoring the program to encourage the creation and production of songs involving ideas of modern biology and the lives of scientists who pursue research in biology. The singer-songwriters spend a month at the institute, interact with scientists and compose songs based on the experience.

“With science, just like athletics, business, and anything else, what sets people apart from the rest, are those who are passionate. The goal of the Songwriter-in-Residence program is to produce songs that celebrate the passion scientists have for their work,” said NIMBioS Director Louis Gross.
