The Residency, which took place together with the talented composers Roman Rappak and Alexander Parsons in the Givaudan sponsored Perfume Lab, investigated the relationship between both fragrance notes and musical notes. Two components utilised in our collective work with Miro Shot – a project which aims to fuse live VR together with live music and sensory feedback to create an immersive reality concert which is experienced as part interactive music video and part live concert.
Both fragrance and music share a language describing their structure from notes to chords and harmonies to compositions. All of course blended on an organ. Like Aldous Huxley in a Brave New World we want to take the experience of scent and music to a new audience. Rappak and Parsons composed musical chords in direct response to my work live mixing fragrances to an audience.
