	That's vaguely the idea.  I had seen systems that turn
chemistry data 
into musical notes.  In some cases one can then
perceive relationships that might not otherwise be
obvious.  Music or sounds are linear in time.  It's
just another possible way of studying the data at
hand.  It might be more like hearing a particular
melody or melodies, leitmotiv, whatever, regularly, and
getting some new ideas.
