Songbird x Bang & Olufsen have teamed up to showcase a carefully curated culinary experience through an audible journey, like no other. The Ritz-Carlton, Perth’s award-winning bar, Songbird will play host for a one night only event with a music playlist curated by Jake Meadows and brought to life by Bang & Olufsen’s signature sound.
On Tuesday 19th October, hotel guests and locals alike can delight in the breathtaking views of Elizabeth Quay, whilst enjoying a set course wine pairing menu and sound experience. The event will bring together a sophisticated mix of luxury and design paired with innovation through sound and taste.
Songbird x Bang & Olufsen will take guests on a journey of sound and the senses that connects closely with each course on the menu. The makers of unrivalled quality sound, Bang & Olufsen know how to set the mood and this event will evoke a perfectly matched music playlist experience combined with curated dishes from the Songbird team.
While the sun sets and the music begins, guests will enjoy an experiential menu by Chef de Cuisine, Stephen Cocks, showcasing seasonal ingredients from celebrated local suppliers.
“Our Songbird x Bang & Olufsen menu has been carefully paired with wines that truly speak to each dish. Our guests will be able to enjoy a combination of high-quality cuisine coupled with music that enhances the experience and takes you on a culinary journey to remember,” said Chef Stephen.
The culinary journey begins with raw and cooked oysters served with accompaniments including grilled bacon jam and brown butter emulsion and pomegranate, shallot and red wine vinegar, paired with a glass of Veuve Clicquot Brut.
For a hint of crispness, charred baby gem lettuce with avocado coconut cream, crispy chickpeas, and dukkha will be paired with a beautiful Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc.
There’ll be something for every palate with a swordfish grilled over coals and served with pearl couscous and heirloom vegetables, and a pork scotch char siu with crispy sticky rice cake and Szechuan pickle.
Guests will be served a salted caramel chocolate fudge brownie paired with a glass of Millbrook Pedro Ximénez to finish the night in true style.
Music curated by acclaimed multi-instrumentalist, harpist, and composer, Jake Meadows, will accompany each stage of the dining experience with a bespoke playlist that pairs his unique mix of true analogue and electronic musical style with the Songbird menu.
Bang & Olufsen will bring the journey to life with their signature sound realised through the Beoplay A9 and Beosound Balance speakers chosen for their exceptional ability to fill the Songbird space and create an unforgettable listening experience.
The Beoplay A9, like a beautiful piece of furniture design, is crafted from carefully selected materials and features built-in room adaptation to adjust sound perfectly to its surroundings, so listeners can experience music the way the artist intended.
It will be supported by the Beosound Balance, a unique and sculptural design piece that delivers controlled beams of sound for a clear acoustic experience from the front and rich sound enhancement at the back.
Fine food and sound both draw on emotions and the Songbird x Bang & Olufsen event gets set to tell a sophisticated story through craftsmanship and unique flavours. Tickets are limited for this intimate dinner pairing.
