In advance of brother Dan Brown’s forthcoming novel, Origin, the award-winning composer re-releases his acclaimed 2011 piece featured in the novel with a special edition deluxe package and remastered audio. The composition is structured like a liturgical Mass, with Brown painstakingly translating DNA sequences and markers into musical phrases set to texts by Charles Darwin, simultaneously commemorating the scientist’s genius while interrogating the relationship between faith and reason.
