Ephemera Trio

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

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 an original sonic experience. Their debut album Orbits and Riffs released this year received critical acclaimed: "Full of sonic textures and infinite possibility, this is one of the true concept albums of recent years. 4 STARS." from Peter Wockner, Jazz and Beyond. The trio comprises Keyna Wilkins (compositions/piano/flute), Elsen Price (double bass/loop pedal) and Will Gilbert (trumpet). NASA recordings of electromagnetic waves from planets and stars is the backdrop soundtrack and has been complied by astronomer Professor Paul Francis. 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. Universe and Universality.

Metanoia is a change of the heart and mind that results in a new perspective on the world. The brainchild of saxophonist Scott Kelly, this project explores how a change in the state of mind of a performer affects the music that they improvise. The music exists in the space between structure and freedom, order and chaos, and resonates with the beauty of the present moment. As well as Scott Kelly, the quartet consists of Tim Clarkson (saxophone), Max Alduca (double bass) and James Waples (drums).
