Culinary Belfast: Soundscaping Food

Pedro Rebelo (Composer)

Research output: Non-textual formComposition


The Culinary Belfast project is an exploration of the city's food culture through sound. Field recordings and interviews from the kitchens of the city's top restaurants, St George's market and numerous food outlets make up a collection of sounds that tell the story of a city through food.
"Culinary Belfast :Soundscaping Food" collates some of these recordings into an 8 minute composition exploring, on one hand, the verbal articulation of food sounds by the city's chefs and food vendors and, on the other, the more abstract, close up and microscopic sound qualities of processes like chopping, frying and boiling.

Culinary Belfast is part of the Belfast Soundwalks project (
