After a sell out show at 920 year old Konno Shrine Tokyo, internationally acclaimed Benjamin Skepper returns to Melbourne to present a live and interactive sound exhibition marking the release of his self-produced 3rd solo album Inimitable.
Recently featured in Rolling Stone and AMICA Magazines in Italy, Skepper has presented performances at contemporary art galleries worldwide, produced music for Tokyo and Paris Fashion Weeks, taken stage at The Venice Carnivale, and undertaken an artist residency at the French Embassy in Tokyo. In a new collaboration with surround sound designer Nao Anzai, the artists will transform The Toff in Town into a site-specific Surround Sound Installation. The Surround Sound audio environment will immerse the audience in sound. Skeppers trademark LIVE electronic sampling on harpsichord and cello, will be layered with sounds of sacred shrines and temples in Tokyo and Kyoto recorded during Skeppers field work. This is your chance to experience the unique and expansive universe of Benjamin Skepper. Skeppers trio of solo albums will be available for exclusive purchase on CD and limited edition 12 vinyl record. Album cover artwork by Ito Keiji of Unidentified Flying Graphics (Tokyo). Embodying classical aesthetic, music and culture, Benjamin Skepper is a musician with an extraordinary sense of the contemporary (Rolling Stone Italy).
