Unusual Ingredients is a multi-sensory touring event and album release bringing to life the relationships between sound and flavour.
Our work draws on gastrophysical research into the sensory links between sound and flavour perception. Think Willy Wonka but with electronic music and cutting edge cross-disciplinary science!
Live events will guide audiences through a menu featuring popping candy, coffee, seaweed and more, wrapped in a mix of ambient electronics and location sound. Each ingredient is enhanced by a specially-composed piece of music designed to transform and dramatise its flavours. The accompanying multi-sensory album combines a 12-track vinyl with food-grade packaging housing the edible ingredients.
Unusual Ingredients is created by musicians Jacob Thompson-Bell and Adam Martin, and food artist Caroline Hobkinson.
