The Sound of Chocolate wins Make.Brussels: 30000 eur to realise the project

With this project Felipe Reinoso Carvalho (ETRO-VUB), Peter Passos and Elien Haentjens want to revitalize the neighborhood of Sablon, by bringing together creative people from the most different fields: musicians, chocolatiers and scientists. Together, they’ll develop an innovative experience which is based on research that explores the influence that music can have on taste.

This exercise will result in a chocolate box with music from Brussels talents, which will be sold at the chocolate shops. “Our goal is to give to visitors an innovative, and more artistic way to experience chocolate while visiting Sablon, and Brussels. They will be able to enjoy this sound-chocolate experience at the shop, or to acquire the box and do it at home, or simply to give this box as an authentic, original present from Brussels”.

“To promote this new experience, we will organise different kinds of events, such as a big chocolate party, more intimate concerts with the participating musicians, a tasting trail around Sablon, and other tasting experiences at the galleries. In the long term, we also want to broaden our focus exploring other types of food and beverages, and to work with arts, which has a special relation with all of our senses. By doing this, we want to make people aware of the relationship between their senses, and put Sablon in the map, as a place for creativity and innovation”.
