“Arresting, genre-blurring… Disquieting music with massive breadth and high drama.” – Sydney Morning Herald
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 projections, it is a unique experience. The ensemble is led by Keyna Wilkins (piano/flute/compositions) with Elsen Price (double bass/loop pedal) and Will Gilbert (trumpet) and includes freely improvised pieces to space sounds, compiled by astronomer Paul Francis, and is accompanied by beautiful NASA space projections.
Drummer, Conductor, and Composer Jason Isaac unite 11 standout musicians to share what emerges when Mahler, Brahms, Beethoven, Stravinsky, and Debussy find their way into large-scale works written for rhythm section, saxophones, and brass quintet.
Comprising members of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Australian Jazz royalty, and some of Sydney’s most in-demand musicians, witness the music weaving and galloping through key areas as it is catapulted between the instrumental colours of the ensemble; with space for improvisation in, over and around the ever-changing treatment of thematic material.
