Join Ephemera in the intimate and fun Johnson St Jazz for a special show featuring the Apollo Missions footage and audio. $20 cash entry at the doors
Ephemera: a musical exploration of celestial landscapes such as pulsars, craters, planetary atmospheres, stars, sun and void. Merging the sound worlds of jazz and contemporary classical, and set to real space sounds, it is a unique sonic experience.
The ensemble is led by Keyna Wilkins (piano/flute/compositions) with Elsen Price (double bass/loop pedal), Will Gilbert (trumpet) and Carl St Jacques (viola) and includes freely improvised pieces.
NASA recordings of electromagnetic waves from planets and stars is the backdrop soundtrack and has been complied by astronomer Professor Paul Francis often with projections of space probe footage.
Each member brings their own unique voice to the ensemble drawing from a multitude of musical backgrounds who combine to create a distinctive sound world that organically react to stellar concepts. Universe and Universality.
EPHEMERA will play at Johnston Street Jazz, 81 Johnston Street, Annandale on Thursday 20th February between 7.30 and 10.30pm. Tickets $20 at the door.
