The answer is no! Epigenetics is more like a volume control that can turn a gene off, on partially, on more and full on. Music is similar. We play music as notes being On or OFF but each note that is ON is ON with a volume. Thus music is much more than the simple make up of the notes. It is a composition of each note, their relative volume and duration. Our genetics is being “played” by our epigenetics. The resulting music is unique! We are unique creatures surviving in a given environment.
