Barilla's intelligent Spotify playlists final simply so long as you have to be cooking pasta
Dried Pasta: It should be so easy to cook, yet that delicious Al Dente texture that Italian restaurants make so effortlessly perfect seems to elude even the greatest pasta fans.
Let the pan simmer for 30 seconds, two longs or too little, and it seems like you've either overcooked porridge or a bowl of something crispy and inedible for dinner.
Fortunately, pasta brand Barilla and agency Publicis, in collaboration with Spotify, have developed a solution that allows the branded release playlists to last for exactly as long as you should cook your pasta.
The activity, titled “Playlist Timer”, consists of a series of eight playlists that are timed to the perfect cooking time for shapes such as spaghetti, linguine, fusilli and penne.
Music genres are pop, hip hop, indie and hits from the past that have been covered by Italian artists. Consumers simply have to bring the pasta to a boil, hit play and drain it when the music stops.
Playlist titles include "Mixtape Spaghetti," "Boom Bap Fusilli," "Pleasant Melancholy Penne," "Moody Day Linguine," "Top Hits Spaghetti," "Best Song Penne," "Timeless Emotion Fusilli," and "Simply Classics Linguine ". ”

Barilla is one of a growing line of brands looking to combine the dining experience with the power of audio.
KFC in the UK and Ireland got into the mindfulness trend by creating a series of soothing noises created by ingesting roast chicken, simmering sauce and sizzling bacon.
Last year, cheese brands Castello and Mother London launched a campaign that explored the relationship between sound and taste. As part of the advertisement, they had musicians interpret and play the flavors of the cheese and play them while people ate to intensify their senses.
