In “Music and Food” class, students create soundtracks to different dishes for a unique and full experience.

When you go out for a multi-course meal at a fancy restaurant, ambience is as important as the food. Diners tend to notice details like decor and lighting — especially in the age of Instagram — but what about sound?

A Berklee College class has combined music and food, teaching students how to score a meal as if it were a movie. This is the first year of the class, which was developed by Professor Ben Houge and inspired by his Food Opera project, where he works with chefs to create a multi-sensory dining experience in which “the plate is the stage.”
