The Octopus Project captured the electricity of one of our very own coffee plants using alligator clips and Midi Biodata Sonification (cool, huh?!)...but what does that mean? Through this process, the electricity of the plant has been converted to midi data. Using synthesis, this data is converted into sound waves. Sound waves = music...and man, does this coffee plant jam hard!
Bonus, you get a canvas carry-all with the Sound of Coffee Design!
In true Try Hard fashion, we wanted to over complicate this. We asked The Octopus Project to interpret the gathered data in a chill, ambient sound as well as a chaotic, intense sound. Some science, math, physics, and incredible musical talent later...the Sound of Coffee was created!
This project was originally released as a blend. Try Hard roasted a coffee to reflect the AMBIENT track and Spokesman roasted a coffee to reflect the CHAOS track. These two coffees were then blended together.
With this release, The Sound of Coffee is back with two distinctly different coffees from the state of Veracruz, Mexico. HOWEVER -- We switched sides.
Try Hard interpreted CHAOS with a naturally-processed coffee from Veracruz, Mexico. The flavor profile showcases a sugar cane sweetness, nutty, full body and a smooth finish.
Spokesman interpreted AMBIENT with a washed coffee from Veracruz, Mexico. This coffee tastes like chocolate mousse, orange creamsicle, and candied pecan.
These coffees work together in harmony when blended together to create a smooth, drinkable cup.
