In 2015 I was invited by Jelly & Gin to be a part of their multi-sensory whisky experience – Create:Eat:Whisky. It was loads of fun.
There were three distinct sections of the experience, each with matching food and whisky drinks. For the first room I made some moody ambient soundscapes to match the mountainous terrain. The second room was meant to feel like an old fashioned highland lounge, so I worked with Roween Suess who made some gorgeous paper gramophone horns. We hid speakers inside, and I controlled the side from behind a curtain.
Eventually the curtain opened, revealing a very snazzy cafe complete with cocktails and disco ball. I was playing the role of French lounge DJ, and I made a set of music especially for the show. I performed it on an array of homemade instruments.
Here’s my DJ set:
And this video shows the whole project rather nicely:
