Food Synesthesia MP3

The ongoing podcast series Le Menu Gastrophonique focuses on the sound of food. Each entry consists of field recordings made not out in the natural environment, but deep inside kitchens — and, at least in one case, the human digestive system. As such, it seeks to document Erik Satie’s conception of the music inherent in everyday household objects and activity. That conception of happenstance sound as music goes a step further in the series’s 10th entry, which focuses on a woman who lost her sense of smell at a young age, but developed a coincident synesthesia that, to her mind, gives sonic properties to food. This podcast includes an interview with her about her experience of food and music, and where they overlap (MP3, resonancefm.com).
