"Arresting, genre-blurring..Disquieting music with massive breadth and high drama." - Sydney Morning Herald

"Full of sonic textures and infinite possibility, this is one of the true concept albums of recent years." - Jazz and Beyond

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.

Formed in 2015, this ensemble have had a series of successful shows including being featured in Extended Play Festival of New Music at City Recital Hall 2018 and Sydney International Womens' Jazz Festival 2017.
