Suoni Per Il Popolo et CKUT 90.3FM présentent
Navid Navab's Practices of Everyday Life | Cooking
Culinary concert for chef and enchanted kitchenette
A synaesthetic performance orchestrated around a chef, an enchanted kitchenette, and sonified ingredients. The cook wields foods, pans and spices, transmuted gesturally into spatialized sound and painterly light within a responsive scenography. A knife rasps against another, onions vocal-ize their unfolding mutation into a cacophonous a cappella, sizzling oil slides into a downpour of Bartok-pizzicati, while seductive aromas immerse the viewer in a multi-sensory augmentation of everyday practices.
