While the sun slowly sets over the Swan River, Ritz-Carlton, Perth’s bar Songbird will host a matched menu-and-music experience, when Chef d Cuisine Stephen Cocks’ “experiential” menu unfurls to composer Jake Meadows’ music as realised through Bang & Olufsen’s Beoplay A9 and Beosound Balance speakers.

“Our Songbird x Bang & Olufsen menu has been carefully paired with wines that truly speak to each dish,” says Chef Stephen. “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.”

The menu comprises:

  • 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.
  • Charred baby gem lettuce with avocado coconut cream, crispy chickpeas, and dukkha, paired with a Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc.
  • 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.
  • Salted caramel chocolate fudge brownie, paired with a glass of Millbrook Pedro Ximénez.

Meadows’ music will accompany each stage of the dining experience with a bespoke playlist that pairs his unique mix of analogue and electronic sounds with the Songbird menu.

Bang & Olufsen’s Beoplay A9 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 sculptural design piece that delivers controlled beams of sound for a clear acoustic experience from the front and rich sound enhancement at the back.
