With Dagmar Geerlings.
Together with allround coffee-enthusiast and finalist of the Dutch Barista Championship, Dagmar Geerlings, I am doing an ongoing series of labs where people experience how sound influences the sensory links. During an event we give people three different coffees and by playing sounds over wireless headphones we change the way the coffee tastes. People vote for the sweet-, bitter- and sourness using their phone during the event and the results are shown afterwards, often showing significant differences in taste caused by the sound played while drinking the coffee. This way the participants get a glimpse of what would be possible in a possible near future, where we think about food, drinks and experience in a different, more holistic way.
