BitterSuite exists to explore and celebrate our sensory experience of the world. Bringing together a world of sensory practitioners, academics, and enthusiasts, BitterSuite offers our audiences unique events to bring them (literally) to their senses. We work closely with experts in the field of sound & the senses including: Somatic Practitioners, Neurologists, Psychologists, Dancers, Composers, Ensembles, Perfumers, Chefs and more. BitterSuite was founded in 2014 by London-based director and composer Stephanie Singer. We are based in London, UK and our international network extends to France, Spain, Canada and the United States. 


BitterSuite is pioneering a new way to experience music through all the senses. When you attend a BitterSuite event, you don’t just hear music with your ears - you feel it on your skin, taste harmonies, and smell melodies. Our work is rooted in changing the way that audiences listen to music through creating experiences which stimulate the senses in time with the music.


THE LAB is BitterSuite's experimental and collaborative hub. In the BitterSuite lab we work with sensory experts to create multi-sensory works and events that teach us about the body and the senses. Our partners include: The Royal Opera House, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Bristol Arnolfini, The Arcola Theatre, Rich Mix London, The Roundhouse, TedX Hackney, Wilderness Festival, Nesta, Sense UK, Heart n Soul, LICA Department of Architecture for Social Innovations, The New York City Ballet, BMI (Broadcast Music Inc), The National Gallery, Old Trumans Brewery, The Institute of Philosophy at UCL. 

“BitterSuite symphonies allow you to remain powerfully in the moment... This is a concert where you don’t just listen to the music, you taste it, smell it and feel it as well.”
