BitterSuite Symphony: A Classical Music Experience Inspired by Synesthesia

This sounds interesting.  I’d try it.  From The Guardian:

What does Debussy smell like? It might not be something you’ve had cause to wonder, but it was the burning question when I took my seat to hear the composer’s String Quartet in G minor on Saturday. On my seat was a small black box that said “Open Me”, and inside the lid another message: “Smell Me”. Just sitting and listening to music is so 2013. This was to be a completely multi-sensory experience.We’ve had immersive theatre, now here’s the immersive concert experience, the latest attempt to stir concert-goers out of their stupor and reignite classical music for new audiences. BitterSuite is a project run by 24-year-old producer Stephanie Singer, and it’s inspired bysynaesthesia, the neurological condition that leads to a confusion of the senses. This is a concert where you don’t just listen to the music – you taste it, smell it and feel it as well.

Wow, huh?  Read on.
