Scent as Story Teller

It is said that our olfactory receptors are directly connected to the most ancient and primitive part of the brain, which is also thought to be the seat of emotion. So what happens if you let the scent do the talking and use smell to generate a story? At Odorama we will speak with scent expert and chemist Tanja Deurloo, composer Calliope Tsoupaki and artist Martina Florians about their work and the connectivity between smell and our memories, connotations and emotions.

Tanja Deurloo - Chemist, Scent Expert & Perfumer
About the interconnectivity of smell, association and memory.
Martina Florians - Multi Sensorial Artist
Using smell, sound and visuals in 'Het kabinet van de dames'.

Calliope Tsoupaki - Composer
On 'Narcissus'; a melodrama for scent and 6 musicians (piano, violin, cello, bass clarinet, horn and harp) which she developed together with Tanja Deurloo.
