Event details

‘Atmospheric, husky trumpet and dreamy piano.’ Limelight

Jazz astronauts Ephemera Quartet travel skyward in a musical exploration of the cosmos. Merging the sound worlds of jazz and contemporary classical, and set to real space sounds and images, Ephemera Quartet is a unique experience. Mesmerising projected spaces-capes and NASA imagery of the electromagnetic waves from planets and stars are the backdrop to a stellar set where riffs and rhythms orbit amongst the planets, moons and stars.

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). Since forming in 2015, Ephemera has had a series of successful shows including being featured in the Extended Play Festival of New Music at Sydney’s City Recital Hall in 2018 and Sydney International Womens’ Jazz Festival in 2017.
