There is such a thing as an Ice Cream-Licking Orchestra

I couldn’t believe my eyes or ears, either. There is an instrumental licking performance known as ‘lickestra’. Created by New York-based designers Emilie Lucie Baltz and Carla Diana, this food/performance art project sees ‘a series of conductive, flavored ice creams onto four white pedestals, each triggering a various sound when licked. From deep baselines to high-pitched ringing tones, the noises and notes produced generate a symphonic tune when played as a group, and as an abstract melody when only one person is independently licking their cone’. Judging by the video, ‘abstract melody’ is code for a shrill noise.
