SON ET CULINAIRE

Son et Culinaire is an interactive, audiovisual performance that merges sound, dance, and culinary processes. The project brings to life the performative and ritual aspects of a meal's production, breathing new life into everyday actions and behaviours. The sound of cooking is usually ignored and disregarded as a by-product of a domestic ritual, but when isolated and framed, it can become an emergent soundscape with its own tonal complexities and rhythms.

Son et Culinaire creates a novel audiovisual space for unheard and unnoticed sonic particularities of different cooking methods. The project brings to life the techniques and sounds of a meal's production in a specific environment and translates them into a sonic-driven performance. The process focuses on capturing the sonic output of a cook’s actions, translating it into a base for a live, audiovisual dance performance. The performance creates a visual space of the cook’s motions in real time, resulting in a performative feedback loop for audiovisual improvisation. Two performers participate in this interactive system, controlling and influencing each other, generating a novel dance performance with a unique aesthetic. Different performers and different dishes will go on to generate new creative outputs.
