Transducers and Sugar
Smells at Taste Tech and tech stints with Haylock
Hello, I hope you had a great Bank Holiday weekend.
Since my last post, I have been working with David Haylock to figure out a way of presenting foods to eat on cue. We have thought about using a peristaltic pump that will be programmed to deliver a flavoured liquid at particular points during a live score.
We have also been working on way of feeling the sound your are hearing, whilst eating. This has so far been developed into a bone conducting gobstopper.
(We drilled through a gobstopper...)
Hopefully I will have some made up by next week
We also tried attaching the transducer to a straw which, whilst drinking water, created the feeling of being under water.
Please don't try this at home.
We also went on a visit with At-Bristol to meet Danny Kite at Taste Tech to learn about taste, flavour and smells and how they correlate to one another.
This is what the smell of a strawberry looks like in lab form :)
The chef and I will be making some cymbal inspired sounds over the next week too.
If you happen to be in At-Bristol on Thursday 2nd June or Friday 3rd June between 3.30-5.30, come and take part in our research workshops.
These will also be happening at the Watershed will be promoted nearer the time.
