Ephemera is a collection of original compositions that came to life when Giannis, Michalis and Michalis met in Cyprus and formed the Lingua Franca Ensemble. Ruven joined soon after.


Just as a photograph captures images, Ephemera uses music to frame emotions that are normally condemned to fleeting transience. From the flash of amusement in a carefree child, to moments of longing due to separation, to the stages one passes from grief to acceptance, Ephemera unveils the power of these elusive emotions in our lives; emotions that pass unnoticed in an instant, but can leave a lasting trace over our conscious choices.
