“Australian violinist Jon Rose has done more than any musician to revolutionise the approach to his instrument, with technical developments and radical performance strategies.” – Andy Gill, The Independent


 

Tracing the interplay between music and humanity through the triumphs and disasters of the last century, The Museum Goes Live is an exhibition and live performance series celebrating the distinctive, ground-breaking vision of audio pioneer Jon Rose through his own Rosenberg Museum.

The Museum Goes Live presents a vast collection of eccentric hand-built instruments and violin iconography, amassed over the forty-year career of this renowned violinist, composer and experimental musician. Open daily as an exhibition, this cabinet of curiosities will be brought to life each night by a series of performances that activate many of the hand built instruments on display and bring together some of Australia’s finest experimental musicians.

Step into the mind of Rose and explore how music has the capacity to unravel and soundtrack our world on the brink of chaos.

 

Performance: Music for a Time of Dysfunction – Part 1
27 – 30 October, 6:30pm
Jon Rose will be joined by experimental orchestra Ensemble Offspring, playing a wild collection of regular and invented musical instruments, including the famous Fence.
Featuring: Ensemble Offspring and guests, with Claire Edwardes, Robbie Avenaim, Zubin Kanga, Cor Fuhler, Julia Reidy, Erkki Veltheim, Noam Yaffe, Hollis Taylor, and Mary Rapp.

 

Performance: Music for a Time of Dysfunction – Part 2
2 – 5 November, 6:30pm
For this very special performance, Rose will be joined by a host of musicians and performance artists, in concert with the museum’s collection of robots (including a robot violin that plays data from the stock market), automatons, and a musical coffin.
Featuring: Tess de Quincey, Clayton Thomas, Robbie Avenaim and Alister Spence.

* Strobe lighting will be used during these performances.
