flavor hybridization


All As One And One As All, At The Same Time

a: Flavor hybridization ~
b: a jazz concert

What: Not only do I feel the hybrid flavor of the mixed bibimbab, but also I chew each ingredient and grain and feel its unique flavor in the process of hybridization. This process of harmonization and hybridization is like a jazz concert. This is how I listen to jazz. I listen to each instrument in the mixture of melodies and rhythms of all together: I focus my ears on one instrument and move my focus to another (like first, piano, and then, the base, and then the saxophone, and then the drum and other instruments), so I feel the diversity and hybridity together in the beautiful harmony without eliminating any.
