It Tastes Like Tchaikovsky

It Tastes Like Tchaikovsky

Multi-sensory eventing at MAC

Nowhere in the careers advice we received did the possibility of becoming a food artist come up. Had it, Unusual Ingredients, is exactly the sort of night we'd be doing all that "extra reading" to achieve. A multi-sensory sort of feasting for your eyes, ears and tongue, you'll be guided through a menu including seaweed, popping candy and tamarind all paired with a piece of music composed to amplify an element of each course, whether that's texture, flavour or feel. Based on actual, real science — gastrophysical research into our sensory perception, if you're asking — the project, run by musicians and that food artist, will consider ideas like how sweet and bitter flavours are impacted by higher and lower frequencies. In Brum for one night as part of the four-date national tour, find the one-off at MAC on May 14. Tickets are £15. And if for some reason you can't make that date, a box set containing a vinyl of the soundtrack as well as the edible ingredients is being released on March 11.
