Jose Gonzales: Biomusician
The October 4 issue of Rolling Stone featured an article on Swedish musician/biologist Jose Gonzales, with a picture of him wearing a lab coat and mixing beakers at a bar. This may be a bit innacurate, considering, according to Rolling Stone, “Gonzales abandoned his studies around the time he released his full-length debut” album, but it is still good for science. He is exactly the type of “cool” scientist I was referring to in my Seed contest essay. Gonzales, who was pursuing his master’s degree at Goteborg University in Sweden, has had songs featured in a Sony commercial and episodes of The O.C., and can be musically described as a South American-influenced Nick Drake (his parents are from Argentina).
