BitterSuite

Experience Classical Music Through Every Sense

About Us

BitterSuite explore the combination of synaesthesia and graphic notation to make choreographed sensory experiences set to music. Particularly focusing on how sensory stimulation can enhance a listeners experience of and engagement with classical music. Can one sense enhance the experience of the other - and how? Projects include an R+D in collaboration with Sense UK - funded by the Arts Council, a multi-sensory concert for Debussy’s String Quartet in G (featured in The Guardian and on BBC Radio three); sensory music education projects funded by Sound Connections and others.

What People are Saying

“Loud would look big and bright” – Participant

“None complained it was classical music – in fact they even clapped at the end!” – Jessica Hodge, Croydon Youth Arts Manager

“Performing Sensory Immersion was created with our talent and skills in mind and everyone – deaf/blind or not, performers and audience alike – adapted to the way each of the deaf/blind performers sees and hears the world”

“Being creative on my own terms and even more so while telling a story about my experience of disability allows me to break free from the misconceptions people might have about me and how they think living with disability is or should be like. Performing is the one place I feel free and safe.” Zara-Jayne Arnold – Performer, Sense UK
