"The look, taste, smell and feel of the food should be carefully composed. I am looking towards Japanese gastronomy because Japan has a food tradition that cares for the holistic integration of these details. Especially the small and carefully balanced dishes of the Kaiseki Ryori-style suits the project. I am also inspired by the precise order of the Japanese tea ceremonies. My aim is to make a harmonious performance that has this ceremonial character."
"By interchanging the natural way of experiencing food with the normal way of experiencing music, both scenes are dragged beyond their respective traditions. My hope is thus that Tasteful Sounds by combining food and music can inspire both scenes to see new possibilities."
