food in the arts




Shakespeare may have described music as the "food of love" but for these electronic sound alchemists, a love of food is the stuff of music. Devoted to the art of concocting Dada Cuisine, the band’s experimental music is derived purely from the sound of cooking. Besides charting the different course of a meal without artificial instrumentation, every dish, after performance, is consumed by all members of the public.

On Saturday October 14th 2000, the Band performed two live sets at Notting Hill’s Tabernacle Arts Centre at Powis Square, Notting Hill, London W11. The free gig was part of the annual London Food Film Fiesta, sponsored by kitchen appliance maestros, Morphy Richards . The first set consisted of a twenty minute high velocity piece, in which the Band wired-up their usual array of hobs and blenders whilst serving food to the audience. For the second set, the Band miked-up the Tabernacle kitchen for a long duration piece, coinciding with a cookery demonstration by chef, Peter Gordon.
