Ephemera Trio Plays The Sounds Of Space
July 23 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Ephemera Trio and Riverside Theatres are delighted to present Meteor Orbit, a musical exploration of celestial landscapes such as pulsars, craters, planetary atmospheres, stars, sun and void. This concert coincides with the Perseid Meteor Shower, an event that occurs once a year in July.
Meteor Orbit merges the sound worlds of jazz and contemporary classical, set to real space sounds and projections, to create a truly unique experience. The ensemble is led by Keyna Wilkins (compositions/piano/flute) with Elsen Price (double bass/loop pedal) and Will Gilbert (trumpet) and includes freely improvised pieces. NASA recordings of electromagnetic waves from planets and stars form the backdrop soundtrack and has been compiled by astronomer Professor Paul Francis with projections of space probe footage.
Each member brings their own unique voice to the ensemble drawing from a multitude of musical backgrounds combining to create a distinctive sound world that organically reacts to stellar concepts.
