We take a break from our usual recipe posts to bring you something pretty awesome. What happens when you rig a couple of tons of herbs and spices to explosives, shoot it with high speed cameras and set the result to music?
You get The Sound of Taste from Grey London.
Several tons of black peppercorns, cardamom, turmeric, paprika, cumin seeds, ginger, chilli and coriander were rigged to explode in perfect sync with a bespoke musical composition. Each explosion represents an individual piano note or chord, which when filmed at high speed, creates a surreal three dimensional sound scape.
Makes you want to go blow up your spice rack for the fun of it. Please do not try this at home.
