It’s not jelly that’s delicious it’s more the ants that love agar agar. Armand used to raise ants in little transparent tubes and Clara would feed them with agar agar and other stuff –it’s just a texture agent. It means that it’s something you use in cooking only for its texture properties – it has no flavour or colour. It says a lot about industrial cooking nowadays, which is close to chemistry and its grandfather, alchemy; it’s analytic. The synthesis of the meal is made with separate components that are used for single properties: texture, taste, flavour, colour, etc.
We can’t say it's directly connected to our way of making music, but it has a lot to do with the way synthesizers work: the sound is made from different specific modules that are not made to work alone. Agar Agar is just the part of meal, like LFO is a part of sound synthesis.
