OPUS: Watershed and At-Bristol Food Residency 2016

OPUS is a live performance uniting sound, image and taste by harnessing congruent elements between them. What visuals and taste would resonate with a particular sound?

Hello Hello

This blog is to mark the end of the Food Residency which was the 15th of July.

Since the wonderful showcase happened and wealth of amazing feedback, I have been lucky enough to conduct a workshop for the coffee super tasters of Extract Coffee Roasters. The workshop was a treat the team as well as a fun exercise in exploring descriptive language about flavour. We had a live musician in house and foods to savour. 

The Extract Coffee Workshop:

Testing out the bone conducting gobstoppers

Trying a taste of the harp

Cello feedback #3

A diamond- the idea of excellence


The other day I formally concluded the residency in the At-Bristol Monday morning staff meeting where I took to the stage with the cymbal whilst the room gorges on lemons in time to the music. 

Here is also a great article published by Imperica about the project:

The horizon ahead looks very exciting for OPUS and I look forward to sharing it with you.

My utmost thanks to Watershed, Pervasive Media Studio and At-Bristol.

What a fab residency it's been!
