Lemon Meringue Pie

June 2013


Lemon Meringue Pie is a project based on a recipe from the well-known Dutch baker Cees Holtkamp. It is a translation of the baking process of a lemon meringue pie to an info graphic. Like with the steps in a recipe, music notes are an instruction of how to play a music piece. Cees Holtkampís lemon meringue pie recipe consists of 4 stages. Each of these stages has been translated into a sheet of music and can be viewed from the website displayed on the laptop. A wooden box containing the midi-keyboard has been placed over the laptopís keyboard. The notes on the sheet correspond to the keys of the keyboard, which have been replaced by recordings of each step of the baking process. So instead of baking the cake, you can play it by ear. Practice makes perfect!
