DJ producer Matthew Herbert has launched a new release series called “Edible Sounds”. The records live up to their title, as in you can actually eat them. And the first food-based vinyl in the series is… a tortilla.
The music on the tortilla record is laser-etched onto the surface of the popular food. “It should be playable on a normal hifi, but [is] unlikely to be delicious,” Herbert writes on Twitter. The tortilla records are been produced in a batch of twelve, and are created on commission from the Science Gallery London.
Edible Sounds isn’t Herbert’s first try at unconventional musical realisation, having previously made music from “a pig’s life cycle, bullets hitting a pie, and a bomb explosion in Libya.”
It is not yet known which foods will be used for the upcoming releases on “Edible Sounds”.
