EXPERIENCE
CLASSICAL MUSIC
THROUGH EVERY
SENSE

ABOUT THE PROJECT


How can we use sensory stimulation to enhance young peoples experience of and engagement with classical music?

Influenced by synesthesia, graphic scores + multi-modality, BitterSuite works with a number of sensory partners, schools and artists to explore these ideas.

What happens when you see red colours whilst listening to romantic music? Or if you eat sweet foods whilst listening to joyful music?... Can one sense enhance the experience of the other - and how?

The research comes together within an in depth study focusing on the effects of young peoples engagement with classical music. All research will also be used as inspiration for multi-sensory installation devised with The People Pile.
