Schwartz Flavour Shots: The Sonic Flavorscape

Screen Shot 2014-01-17 at 11.35.03 PM

What does flavour look like? How does it sound? These are the questions that inspired us to create what we describe as a ‘Sonic Flavourscape’.

Several tons of black peppercorns, cardamom, turmeric, paprika, cumin seeds, ginger, chili and coriander were rigged to explode in perfect sync with a bespoke musical composition.

Each explosion represents an individual piano note or chord, which when filmed at high speed, creates a surreal three dimensional sound scape.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
