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 and groundbreaking vision of audio pioneer, Jon Rose, through his own Rosenberg Museum.
Ensemble Offspring along with some of Australia’s finest experimental musicians join Jon Rose, playing a wild collection of regular and invented musical instruments, including the famous Fence.
Presented by Performance Space, The Museum Goes Live brings 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 to audiences.
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.
Step into the mind of Rose and explore how music has the capacity to unravel and soundtrack our world on the brink of chaos.
