“ChocoJazz – Canvas XL” – June 11 ’17ChocoJazz Painting MenuNyc Startup weekend 2016

This Summer we will be back in the Netherlands for a fresh and new ChocoJazz event. This time not 10 courses but 4 different edible musical paintings. The whole show will be in the theme of four elements; red, yellow, blue and black/white, represented by four old Dutch Masters and what they have in common with ‘de Stijl’ (you know Mondriaan and such). Vocal jazz and a string quartet (yes, violins…) will accompany the interpretations of the masters and the sweetness.

“10 courses 10 songs” 

(June 2016 & January 2017)

All culinary one-bites are based on art, emotions and music and are driven by haute cuisine techniques. Don’t expect only chocolate, but also cake, coffee foam, kardemom gel, infused rosewater, amarena-cherries blanched in port wine, hibiscus crumbles and other explosions in your mouth. And, while Ted is filling the evening with his goodies, Vivienne mixes her original compositions with the electronic inventiveness from Dutch bass player Robin Koerts. Together they are combining jazz, live loops, visuals and soundbites. The efforts of Robin, who is also known from the video-samples of the Wereld Draait Door (a Dutch tv-show), and Vivienne’s vocal jazz songs (with voice, loops, ipad apps and synthesizer) blend together in this new musical concept. Video fragments like youtube drummers, tennis players, didgeridoos, the Simpsons and Wally, with their visuals ánd their sounds, are all part of the compositions.
