Benjamin Skepper

Cellist and harpsichordist Benjamin Skepper has played in art galleries, fashion shows, and at the French Embassy in Tokyo shortly before it was demolished a few years ago. This weekend, he'll be treating local audiences to an ambitious new performance, held in the unlikely setting of Shibuya's Konno Hachimangu Shrine. Already known for his use of live sampling, Skepper will incorporate field recordings and a custom surround-sound speaker rig into his sonic armoury this time around – plus some Laurent-Perrier champagne to help sweeten the deal. Advance tickets, including champagne and a copy of Inimitable, are available via Skepper's website until May 8.
