Practices of Everyday Life | Cooking
On Sunday, February 26 at 8:00 p.m. Open Space presents composer Navid Navabs "Practices of Everyday Life | Cooking" as performed by Chef Tony Chong, featuring Jerome Delapierre on real-time video, and Navab Navab on sound.
Practices of Everyday Life | Cooking is a synaesthetic performance orchestrated around a chef, an enchanted kitchenette, and sonified ingredients. The cook wields foods, pans and spices, his gestures tranformed into surround sound and painterly light and responsive video. A knife rasps against another, onions vocalize 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. Composer Navid Navab invites guests to delight every nuance of his enchanted kitchenette while joining chef Tony Chong in the act of performing music through cooking.
You have never heard food prepared quite like this.
