How does sound affect our perception of food, and how does taste affect our experience of music?
Tasteful Turntable is a sensuous performance that explores this sense-interference between music and gastronomy.
The performance takes place around a slowly rotating dining table designed to let the guests experience parallel stimuli through these two senses. Different small dishes containing only one bite each are carefully positioned on the table, and four guests wearing headphones are seated around it.
As the table slowly turns, the guests taste the flavors and listen to a synchronized music composition coherent with the position of the foods and their tastes.
