Project Title: Scratch & Sniff: The Stephanie Richards Quartet

Project Description: Scratch & Sniff is series of inter­-sensorial musical works that synthesize the perception, translation and dialogue between olfactory and auditory senses. Experienced from both a performing and listening standpoint. the compositions engage improvising musicians with specifically designed scents at precise intervals throughout the score, while a recorded publication includes scent­-embedded ink to provide listeners with associative scent structures and an enhanced, singular musical experience.
