Reader Chris McKay writes in to inform me about "Chess Music", which is the result of transposing chess notation into its musical counterpart. You can find the results here, but still one is led to ask: "But is it music?" (Note: At the bottom of that post you can find a further link going in the opposite direction, turning beautiful music into nonsense chess. An interesting trick would be to compose something that works as both music and sensible chess. Who knows, maybe a patron of the arts or some of the world's limitless government resources can go to funding the endeavor.)
On another music-related note (ha ha), the legendary 88-year-old GM Svetozar Gligoric has done some composing and has just released a first album. The music includes multiple genres, including rap (?! Gligoric with "bling"? Hmm...) in addition to more traditional genres. Good for him! You can read more about it here, but there don't seem to be any links there, or in the articles linked therein, to the music itself. If someone can find it, let us know!
