Where? Ace Hotel’s Roof Top Bar & Terrace, Shoreditch
What? For the second editon of its monthly gathering, the Ace Hotel will be home to Breaking Bread: Sonic Feast, hosted on its roof top with uninterrupted views of the capital. There’s even a giant purple telescope atop the roof so you can sky-watch through London’s streets. Hear from a series of inspirational speakers as they discuss the correlation between sound and music and how these two things can influence your taste buds.
The multi-sensory, sit down dinner will feature three guests who will teach diners to taste with their ears. Food historian and sonic sensorium, Tasha Marks, explores the relationship between food, art and history in events, installations and edible interventions with her business, AMV Curiosities. Professor of the senses, neurologist and experimental psychologist, Professor Charles Spence from the University of Oxford will explore the problems that come with designing foods that maximally stimulate the senses. Composer and lecturer at Leeds College of Music, Jacob Thompson-Bell will also have a seat at the table to provide an in-sight to multi-media connections.
Edwin Hynde, part of Anglo-German duo, Picnic at the Whitehouse, will be soothing the mind and body by providing a soundtrack to the event. On the menu for the evening is a Noodle Soup to start, some Sizzling Beef & Veg for mains and a Choc Pot to finish. The event has been curated by Caroline Hobkinson, who uses food as performance and social commentary in collaboration with THE POP.
