WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“A caring, loving, surprising, delicious and elevating journey.
loved it! thank you”
Fantasies is a musical-culinary journey for a blindfolded audience.
A collaboration between flautist Roy Amotz (Jerusalem/Berlin) and cooking artist Asli Hatipoglu (Istanbul/Amsterdam):
A several-course dinner will be served to the sounds of the musical pieces that inspired each one of the dishes.
The audience is invited to shed itself from separateness and to dive into the experience of fusing the senses of both the palate and the ears - as one whole.
Composition and cooking, tasting and listening are all temporal experiences that are linked to our senses. We tend to eat and listen ‘with our eyes’ before we actually activate the relevant senses of taste and hearing. The visual image in our brain instantly creates a certain expectation and thus adds an element of comparison to our experience. The idea behind “Fantasies” is to allow the other senses to be experienced in their own right, without the domination of visual engagement, and thus enable the audience to give in to the pure experience, without preconceptions.
Asli Hatipoglu was born in Turkey in 1990 to parents of Turkish and Thai descent; at the age of 14 she moved to Asia, where she continued her education, completing both her IGCSE and IB diplomas. Soon after graduating, Asli moved to the Netherlands to study art & design. After a year in Design Academy Eindhoven, she decided upon completing her bachelor in Textile Art & Design in Amsterdam at the fine arts school Gerrit Rietveld Academy.
“As a textile and culinary artist, my work mainly focuses on investigating certain value systems associated with what we choose
to eat and wear, which have all almost disappeared in today’s society.
In relation to one another, I interpret the practice of cooking and eating as the precursor to clothing ourselves, as if humans must first decide what enters their body before considering what covers it.”
Flutist Roy Amotz has performed worldwide as a soloist and in various chamber music formations. His range of musical activities includes early music, classical and romantic repertoire as well as contemporary music and improvisation. He is a member of the Meitar Ensemble for contemporary music, The Tel-Aviv Wind Quintet and the Geneva Camerata chamber orchestra. His work with these groups has brought him to many places around the globe.
“I strongly believe classical music can be
a tool for personal transformation.
Music & Beyond aims to bring this music closer to people who do not reach it for various reasons and then focuses on the nature of the experience during the performance.”
