The 4th Annual Synth Chili Cook-off, which may be the greatest idea for a synth event ever, is scheduled for Sunday, February 16, 2014 7:00 pm at Empty Bottle in Chicago.
Four musicians will each make a chili and perform an original sonic interpretation of it, using a synthesizer. The audience decides which pairing is the best. The winner is then allowed to return for next year’s cook off.
“There’s no way you can do this and not be humorous. I’m not going to deny that it’s just a totally fucking stupid idea,” says event co-founder Brett Naucke, adding, “It’s just awesome!”
Here’s a video preview:
