Note: This review is from the 2017 Fringe

Calling all gin lovers!¬†Hendrick’s Perilous Laboratory for the Absorbment of Natural Teachings (P.L.A.N.T) is conducting a genuine and most scientific experiment where you can make harmonious music through cucumber collaboration and cocktail consumption.

Hendrick’s Laboratorians ¬†lead you through the immersive experiment to make music through collaborating with a set of cucumbers, which are rigged up to a piece of software that when triggered creates different sounds and atmospheres. The sounds are programmed and designed in such a way that when all played together, a verdant and cacophonic composition worthy only of only the most curious of ears is created.

In true Hendrick’s spirit, it’s a little peculiar but lots of fun, and there’s the added bonus in that you are rewarded with a wee libation for your efforts.

It’s on at Assembly George Square Gardens, Edinburgh from 3rd-13th August from 12:00 – 23:00 and even better, entry is free with no ticket required.
