On 16 March 2016 we presented Edible Sound, a special one-off performance by artist, musician and composer Matthew Herbert at The Guy’s Chapel in London Bridge. The sold out performance was the finale of our current season FED UP: The Future of Food.
Edible Sound involved amplifying the sounds of everyday food using a DJ’s turntables and speaker system. The performance presented the sounds of raw natural foods, such as potato and celeriac, alongside processed foods such as refined sugar, cheese and reformed meat. Coinciding with treasury’s announcement of plans to introduce a tax on sugary drinks, the thought-provoking performance invited audiences to consider the foods we consume everyday from a new and unusual perspective.
