Project: The sound of popping wine corks made into music

 

There is a sound that distinctly lets you know that the party is starting and you're about to get something nice to drink. It's the sound of a popping wine cork. Everyone loves that sound, right? Alf Tumble, one of Sweden's most established Sommelier and wine writer, together with Håkan Lidbo, music producer and sound artist, have made this project to explore the sound of the popping cork. What key is this sound? Do all bottles sound the same? Can you even tell something about the properties of the wine by listening to the pop?
