Pastry Chef ChocoTed and Jazz singer Vivienne Aerts collaborate to create an experience full of Jazz and Chocolate: ChocoJazz - Canvas. This culinary composition is a perfect synergy between art, food, and music.

One of the projects where Ted and Vivienne collaborate is the ChocoJazz-Canvas. Ted and Vivienne create in the moment, together as a whole: while Ted is making a ‘pastry-painting’, Vivienne is improvising a soundscape to his movements. Using her voice, loops, iPad apps and a synthesizer she creates a full orchestra by herself, resulting in an ever-changing and newly improvised piece.

The artwork is only temporarily: it’s made to be eaten, giving the audience an essential role in the performance. Ted gets his inspiration from Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Karel Appel and other abstract expressionistic painters. Don’t expect only chocolate, but also cake, white wine-gel, elderflower cream, poached strawberries, red-fruit rubber, hibiscus crumble and other out of the box flavors and textures.

Scalewise the canvas can serve 4-400 people with a range from for example 1*1 or 20*2 or 4*6 meter. The duration of the performance is between 10-25 minutes, excluding the time that the audience will eat the artwork. Above 200 people the artwork can be made on small tiles on the table, making it easier to serve. Every table is different in form, size, and ingredients, depending on the theme and style of the event.
