Asteroid Ekosystem + Ilex

This is one mighty sonic trip that paints colourful pictures in the mind’ - Loudmouth Magazine

The brainchild of shape-shifting pianist Alister Spence, Asteroid Ekosystem is a supergroup for the 21st century featuring pioneering guitarist Ed Kuepper - The Saints, Laughing Clowns), and legendary bassist Lloyd Swanton - The Necks).

With the spontaneity of jazz, the instrumentation and dynamism of rock, and futuristic explorations resembling psychedelic – Asteroid Ekosystem is a progressive musical statement that can’t be restricted by genres or labels.

Opening the night will be ilex - the solo percussion and electronics project from local Holly Conner. Sets feature live and rhythmic drumming, experimental tracks; and beautiful, percussive sound-worlds - music designed to transport and spark the imagination.
