The Sound of Stout

We co-hosted an experiment with Music Tas that definitively answers the question no one is asking – what does the taste of stout sound like?

For some reason Music Tasmania loaned Moo Brew a bunch of talented musicians for a day. We didn’t really know what to do with them. So we gave them some stout and set them off on a taste-to-audio experiment. This is what happened…

We hosted a special Moo Brew stout tasting session at the very vintage Astor Private Hotel. We then asked the bunch of young guns to translate what they tasted into a piece of music. The music was inspired by a single sip, multiple sips, a day long session even. Maybe the flavour changed the more they drank it? Maybe the music even traced the anticipation and the aftermath? There was no one way to bring the taste to life.

Moo Brew filmed the process, compiled the music, and turned it into a video that definitively answers the question no one is asking – what does the taste of stout sound like?

Special thanks goes to Music Tas, Ga Ga Music, The Astor Hotel, Akouo and Monique Brumby, for roping us in to their musical sessions and allowing us to undertake the nonsensical.

Big ups to the Hobart musicans who grasped the brief (or lack of) by the horns: Anna Williams, Beatrix Bouwman, Jackson Simpson, Jonathon Dieckfoss, Ruby Austin-Lund, Rhys Gray, Crystal Livermore, Thomas Fowkes and Finn Clarke.
