Snacky Tunes talk food and music with Frieze next week
Darin and Greg Bresnitz, hosts of the hit podcast, will chat with Frieze’s publisher, Rebecca Ann Siegel, about the cultural significance of our listening and eating habits
Over the past few months quite a few of us have been focussing a little more on food, music, and conversation (even if that latter simple pleasure has invariably been conducted through a screen).
Darin and Greg Bresnitz, have been digging deep into these subjects for a little longer. The Philadelphia-born brothers have been hosting their hit US podcast Snacky Tunes since 2010, bringing together musicians such as Dev Hynes with chefs such as Dominique Crenn, to talk about the crossovers between the culinary and musical arts.
Darin and Greg’s new book, Snacky Tunes, keeps that conversation going, with 77 fresh new interviews with chefs including Alex Atala, Sean Brock, Ben Shewry, Nina Compton, Virgilio Martinez and Pia Leon, among others. In the book the chefs discuss how music has changed their lives and influenced their careers, while accompanying recipes and playlists enables readers to recreate the experience in their own kitchen.
That’s all proving to be such a rich cultural mix, that the fine-art world is taking notice. Next Wednesday, 19 August, Frieze magazine’s publisher Rebecca Ann Siegel, will join Darin and Greg to discuss just what our listening and eating habits say about us.
The event, which forms part of Frieze’s regular Sessions programme, will also feature a special kitchen playlist by chef and owner of London’s Darjeeling Express, Asma Khan. You listen in via Zoom, by registering here. Meanwhile, for more on the brothers’ book, take a look at Snacky Tunes here; and for more from Frieze, take a look at this book.
