Benjamin Skepper

“Embodying classical aesthetic, music and culture, Benjamin Skepper is a musician with an extraordinary sense of the contemporary”

Benjamin Skepper creates cutting edge and experimental artworks that seek to challenge our perception, and collapse the borders that divide us. He is particularly focused on the application of new technologies and scientific innovations within the context of contemporary sound and visual arts practice, exploring the human body as a musical instrument, human identity, the relationship of sound and medicine and human healing. A Melbourne born classically trained musician, he operates at the confluence of art, medical science, technology, fashion, modern classical and the avant-garde. He is a composer, a performer, an art director, published scientific researcher, and cultural advocate, with deep interests in Russia and Japan. His talent and curiosity have taken him across musical boundaries and artistic borders for which he has garnered international acclaim.
