What is your favourite musical instrument, your heart-song, your jam?
Now tell me, what does it taste like?
As the winner of Watershed and At-Bristol’s first ever ‘Food Residency’, artist and designer Sabrina Shirazi has been exploring the common and unusual associations that we make between music, the imagery it evokes and importantly, its flavour. What do you think the sound of a cymbal tastes of?
Working with technologists, chefs, musicians, families and foodies from across the city, Sabrina has been developing a unique way to marry food with the sound of a musical instrument.
Join us for this special showcase event to hear all about Sabrina’s adventures in culinary composing, with a chance to hear from the artist, find out more about the residency process, test out some of her tasty, techy experiments, and perhaps suggest your own sonic recipe.
Tickets for this event are free but places are very limited and booking is essential. This event will feature simultaneous BSL (British Sign Language) interpretation.
About the residency:
Food Residency 2016 is a Watershed programme, in partnership with At-Bristol. Watershed is supported by Arts Council England. This residency was designed by Watershed and At-Bristol to support a creative individual to research, produce and present new ideas that combine art, technology and food. Artist Sabrina Shirazi has been awarded the residency and receives a bursary, critical and technical support, alongside desk and testing space in both organisations.
The Food Residency began on 3 May 2016, and will come to a close on 15 July 2016. This showcase offers the opportunity to share the process, discoveries and ideas developed through a process of iterative research and development undertaken in Watershed’s Pervasive Media Studio, and At-Bristol Science Centre in recent weeks.
