A new show that explores the relationship between flavour, sound and colour when it comes to enjoying cuisine and cocktails is launching in London next week.

The House of Gastrophonic has partnered with Diageo Reserve’s World Class event production agency, Event Concept, and food architects, Kofler & Kompanie, to present Unexpected Connections.

Launching on March 7 at The Magazine restaurant in London’s Kensington Gardens, Unexpected Connections explores the relationship between flavour, sound and colour frequencies across a four-course, four-way pairing of cuisine and cocktails, a celebratory soundtrack and dynamic light show. Embracing the full spectrum of taste, sound and colour frequencies, this event will invite guests to discover how senses and flavours can be influenced by sound and colour.

Diageo Reserve’s World Class GB Bartender of the Year 2016, Aidan Bowie, has created an exclusive cocktail menu using Diageo Reserve ’s portfolio of luxury spirits. Each cocktail has been designed to match the immersive surroundings and the menu curated by The Magazine’s head chef, Emmanuel Eger.

Dave Crompton, director for The House of Gastrophonic said: “Sound and colour are known to enhance our perception and enjoyment of flavour. Unexpected Connections is a show – it takes the science out of the laboratory and places it firmly in the event and party space.”

Éadaoin McDonagh, Kofler & Kompanie UK managing director said: “In the age of experiential dining and immersive event culture, we continue to set the scene for culinary event creativity across the world. This partnership
is a hugely exciting proposition and through Unexpected Connections, we will take table culture to a whole new level.”

Unexpected Connections will launch at an exclusive event on March 7 at The Magazine in London’s Kensington Gardens. To register interest to experience Unexpected Connections, visit
