Chess games into piano music?

I thought some of you might get a kick out of this...
As chess players know, the squares on a chess board are numbered this way:





And this happens to be the same notation as is used in music for notes (A, B, C, D, etc.), the numbers denoting how high the particular note is (in which octave).

So someone came up with the idea of "translating" chess games into music! Here's the link: Chess Music. Provided are three mp3's to listen to as examples of some famous chess games translated into piano music using this method. Kind of funny/interesting. Check also these free online piano lessons (very basic) if you need some.
