EP #8: 'The Smell' with Jo Burzynska & Anina Rich

This episode we do a deep dive into the senses and talk to the artist/scientist team behind Osmic Resonance, an audio-olfactory project that sought to harness sympathetic vibrations between sounds and aromas. The work tapped into a phenomenon of sensory cross-over — how does smell effect our perceptions of sound? Working closely with the cognitive neuroscientist Dr. Anina Rich and her work on synaesthesia, artist Jo Burzynska created a multi-sensory chamber in which the aesthetic, scientific and therapeutic potential of sensory interactions were explored and experienced through intensifying and shifting, entwined sound-and aroma-scapes.
