Cheddar the Devil You Know
Also, Cheese Release Me by Engle-camembert Humperdink
One Swiss chap hopes to get his rock and rollright by playing music to cheese to see if that makes it taste better. Burgdorf (Berthoud) resident Beat Wampfler's unconventional experiment attracted the attention of The Japan Times, which reported that since September the veterinarian and cheese enthusiast has been serenading …
Crank up the subwoofers and get ready to rock and roll: Metallica has its own whiskey, and it was created in part by the band’s music. A blend of straight American whiskeys selected and blended by master distiller Dave Pickerell, Blackened was put through a proprietary “sonic enhancement” process that used Metallica songs to create sound waves that impact chemical reactions taking place in the aging whiskey.
No, this is not a joke.
This whole experiment seems badly thought out. Here's how to do it properly:
Run the set of experiments in one of those big, Swiss communal underground nuclear shelters so all the cheese shares the same environmental conditions.
Put each set of different cheese types in its own soundproof enclosure
Keep one set silent as a control.
Each of the others gets a different type of music during the whole maturing process, including but not limited to: Monastic plainsong, Wagnerian Operas, Mozart, Brass bands, Trad jazz, Bebop, Folksong, Reggae, Heavy Metal Rock, Prog Rock, Stones, Zappa, Top Ten pop hits, Andean mountain music,...
Then the tasters get to rate which music goes best with each type of cheese.
I wonder if music while you eat makes a difference to how something tastes. There must be bandwidth problems in the nervous system and brain when there are multiple stimuli.
The back of the nose is important in differentiating tastes. Synaesthesia happens to us all even if only sunlight causing us to sneeze.
Illuminating things with blue light tends to put people off eating them. IIRC supermarkets play particular types of music to encourage people to buy things.
