Suddenly, a piano is left without its wooden case and its interior is revealed in front of our very own eyes. Long strings, shorter strings, padded hammers, keys... This piano is like no other: a secret recipe is hidden in its mechanism and each sound can become an ingredient in a musical… cooking! We discover the bizarre sound-materials inside this enormous pot, we choose those we like best, we combine them, we mix them and then we heat them up, to make a delicious recipe. We close our eyes and enjoy it with our ears open wide! The “chefs” and the listeners interchange, so that every member of the group will have the chance to experience cooking with sounds.
