Set your alarm clock for a meditative sunrise listening session with Matt Rösner.

In partnership with Tone List, WA Museum Boola Bardip presents an experimental concert series set against the backdrop of the sunrise, perched in the highest reaches of our eastern terrace.

We invite you to start your day early, sit with a coffee and take a moment to reflect in peace while watching Boorloo’s east metropolitan area light up from the base of the hills to the steps of the Museum, scored by WA Musician, Matt Rösner.

Level 3 terrace nook (indoors, warm and undercover) transforms into a serene performance space for the artist to take you on a journey over one and a half hours of sunrise.

Matt Rösner

Rösner is a sound artist from Wadandi Boodja, Western Australia.

The open spaces around Rösner's home infuses his work with an organic sense of space and time constructed using various instruments, custom-built software patches and detailed field recording studies.

Drawing inspiration and influence from the colours, seasonal shifts and sounds of his surroundings, Rösner produces an immersive listening space, compositions for reflection and quiet mediation.

In a recording career spanning 20 years, Rösner has released records on room40, 12k, Hidden Shoal, Apestaartje, Miatera/12x50 and Meupe, alongside various compilation releases on Australian and international labels. 

Matt is one half of the Perth experimental duo, Glided with Adam Trainer and has collaborated with Dr Cameron Webb, aka Seaworthy, to produce three records documenting at risk environments in southern New South Wales.
