Thursday 25 May 2017, 8.30pm
EPHEMERA TRIO ALBUM LAUNCH
“The music and more is, truly, out of this world.. this is an intergalactic love song dedication that knows no peer” Lloyd Bradford Syke, Australian Stage.
Ephemera Trio: space music. A musical exploration of celestial landscapes such as pulsars, craters, planetary atmospheres, stars, sun and void. Merging the sound worlds of jazz, classical, experimental and flamenco, and set to real space recordings, the performances create an original sonic and visual experience.
The ensemble comprises Keyna Wilkins (piano/flute/compositions) Elsen Price (double bass/loop pedal) and Will Gilbert (trumpet) and includes freely improvised sections. NASA recordings of electromagnetic waves from planets and stars is the backdrop soundtrack and has been constructed by astrophysicist Professor Paul Francis with visual projection using original space probe footage.
Each member brings their own unique voice to the ensemble drawing from a multitude of musical backgrounds. Elsen is a new music specialist, Will is a jazz trumpeter and Keyna is a jazz/classical/flamenco musician and composer, who combine to create a distinctive sound world that organically react to stellar concepts.
Fresh out of the recording studio, this trio will have a whole lot of new tunes from their album especially for this show. Universe and Universality. ephemeraensemble.com
