What if you could drink a song? What would the Black and Tan Fantasy taste like?
The Pianocktail is a project that attempts to give us the experience of synesthesia and be able to taste music by mixing a cocktail according to what you played in the piano.
The Pianocktail works by sitting in a stool that has a sensor which tells the Pianocktail that someone is ready to play a tune. The Pianocktail then records all the keys and notes that are played. When the person playing the Pianocktail stands up, the mixing of liquids begin. Little lights under the bottles indicate which ingredient is being dispensed. After a minute or so, the drink will be ready! What does it taste like? I guess you will have to find out your self one day!
Don’t know how to play the piano? Well, you could play your self a strange drink, or you could have one of your friends play you a Beethoven Symphony.
This is what the wiring of the Pianocktail looks like:
