Wine writer’s NZ sound and wine premiere

15th July, 2013

Wine writer’s NZ sound and wine premiere

Oenosthesia is a ground breaking interactive exploration of sound and taste created by wine writer and sound artist, Jo Burzynska (aka Stanier Black-Five). This soundscape using her recordings of the vineyards and wineries of Irpinia in Italy, explores the significant way that sound influences the perception of taste through the combination of the changing timbres and frequencies in the piece with a selection of different wines from the region.

The work was created last year during Burzynska’s residency in Southern Italy, and is possibly the first piece of gustatory/sound art created both from and including wine. It was premiered at the Interferenze New Art Festival’s Factory of Art Rurality and Media 2012 (FARM2012) in Tufo, Italy and this programme is the first time the installation has been presented outside Italy.

As a prelude to the evening, there will be a showing of “FARM – Factory of Art, Rurality and (New) Media”, directed by Interferenze Director, Leandro Pisano. This short film documents Burzynska’s project and the “Suoni dal confine” residency programme of which it was part, in which international artists were invited to embrace rurality in the creation of works of sonic art in the Italian countryside. Burzynska will then personally introduce the project, her own theories on sound and taste and the science of sensory interaction before those attending experience Oenosthesia. The installation lasts 25 minutes and includes tasting of three wines from Irpinia.

As well as being one of the country’s leading wine writers, Jo Burzynska is also an active sound artist, recording and performing internationally under the name, Stanier Black-Five. In recent years she has been exploring the synergies between taste and sound through her own research and hosting music and wine matching workshops.

Oenosthesia will be presented at:

Audio Foundation, Friday July 19th, $10, 6.30 pm – booking essential: admin@audiofoundation.org.nz

Physics Room, Saturday July 20th, free, 6pm – booking advised: physicsroom@physicsroom.org.nz
