Music and sound is an important craft in our creative studio. We compose our own music and soundscapes that we use for our experiences, food designs, kitchen concerts and exhibitions. From our music studio we cooperate with several musicians to create popular music with the KITCHEN COLLECTIVE project. We also use sound technology to use as a designing tool and our KITCHEN CONCERTS are used to connect with a broader audience to tell our stories and ideas about future food.
Several projects that are connected with music;
KITCHEN COLLECTIVE is a project initiated by artist and Creative Chef Jasper Udink ten Cate. Together with keyboard player Daan Richard they invite creatives and musicians in Jaspers kitchen to create music. It is not a band, It is a collective of likeminded musicians that want to play music and send out a positive message; a recipe for life. It is a long term project where musicians are invited to cook up some tasty sounds and songs. All of the music is composed, played, mixed and produced at their Creative Chef Studio in the Netherlands and has some juicy and delicious sounding ingredients. Other well known musicians and players who already participated are Francien van Tuinen on vocals, Herve Lètor on saxophone and Berenice van Leer on vocals. The Kitchen Collective is on a tour to bring you their music live on stage with the food and artworks coming out of Jasper’s Creative Chef Studio and will be hitting the summer festivals in 2023. Stay tuned for delicious recipe’s for life!
KITCHEN CONCERT. The Kitchen Concert Tour is an initiative that presents the music, art and food by Jasper and friends, and features a 4-course storytelling dinner with a concert by his music project Kitchen Collective and shows Jaspers artworks.
COMPOSITION TABLE 2019 An interactive experience in which the dinner guest becomes part of a musical composition. Creative Chef invites guests to use ceramics, tablecloths, napkins and food to interact with artificial intelligence, developed by Dutch tech company Superp. While exploring the possibilities of tableware a musical composition comes to life. Creative Chef is redefining the typology of our eating habits.
ROLLING STONES EXHIBITION 2023 With great joy the Creative Chef Studio team was commissioned to design a special dinner for The Rolling Stones exhibition @ the Groninger Museum in the North of The Netherlands. Together with food partner and friends of VERMAAT catering we created a storytelling dinner that told the story of the rich history of the legendary rock ‘n roll band.
We served 365 unique tasting hits that connected with the bands number of songs they released.
We served a hamburger that changed your mouth into the colour of the iconic logo.
The guests had their main course at some giant tables referring to several albums while they where surrounded by screens that showed footage of a live Rolling Stones performance.
As a dessert they had Sticky Fingers candy floss.
At the end the guests were given a unique chocolate single.
CREATIVE CHEF RECORDS 2018 Creative Chef Records is ought to be a collection of ceramic plates in a record-sleeve on which you can find an artists name, a song you can play with a scan code and a favourite recipe of the artist. We are currently talking with partners to make this a big and succesfull project.
At this moment we only have prototypes which my friends from the Graphic design studio Autobahn helped me to create. They did a nice design where the ingredients where spinned at 33 bpm.
