Under such circumstances, British illustrator Billie Jean has released a "Sonic Poster" that lets you feel the deliciousness with "piano sounds. The U.S. media outlet Fast Company reported the news.
The "Sonic Poster" was created by Billie in collaboration with Grey London, an advertising agency in London, as part of a promotion for Schwartz 's, a British spice brand.
The poster features an illustration of 16 "feathers" spread out in the shape of a sea anemone. Each feather is a different color, and each represents an "herb" or "spice.
In addition, each feather is imbued with a piano chord sound. When touched by hand, the feathers produce a "sound" reminiscent of the herb or spice they represent.
For example, cumin is an E-flat major chord, chili is an A-flat major chord, and so on. When you touch the poster after connecting it to the dedicated smartphone app, your smartphone will play a sound that "tastes" the feather you touch.
The level of the artists was so high that I, a commoner, had no idea what spice was being expressed by any of the sounds. However, it is clear that the fresh and slightly complex chords are pleasant to the ear. In other words, this "comfort" may be what "deliciousness" means.
I encourage everyone to actually listen to the music. And if you can associate the sounds with herbs and spices, you are probably an artist at heart.
