FOODJOB – Frequencies under the tongue , a gastronomical sound performance by Enrico Ascoli, first performed at the Interferenze festival in Bisacca in 2010. A multisensory, synesthetic musical-culinary experience of food preparation which generates a sound composition in real time, accompanied by a sampling of the prepared delicacies on the spot. A seductive merge of olfactory, auditory and visual sensations with extremely delicious and edible byproducts achieved in a melodious ambiance created with the help of panoramic recording and piezo electric microphones which transmit the resonances during the food preparation process. The new, Zagreb FOODJOB variant is created through an Italian-Croatian collaboration between two great foodies: Enrico Ascoli and Mario Bobanović will join forces to create and play a unique melody of fish specialties preparations which will surely be a pleasure for both ears and mouths alike.
