BENJAMIN SKEPPER "EIKA" LIMITED EDITION 12" VINYL SOLO ALBUM (contrapuntal 001)
EXCLUSIVE LIMITED EDITION 12″ VINYL RELEASE of 500 COPIES ONLY
Released by contrapuntal records, “eika 詠歌” is Skepper’s debut solo album composed and recorded in Tokyo. The album is a culmination of Skepper’s exploration of “looping” and “sampling” techniques drawn from his experience with techno and hip-hop production and performance.
Conceived for violoncello, the layering of violoncello melodies or samples, are multi-tracked to create a full orchestral sound.
Originally released on 12” vinyl record, the music inspired a cross-collaboration between graphic art director Ito Keiji, couturier Michiko Suzuki, milliner Rachel Skepper, photographer David Stetson and cameraman Hisanori Furukawa (Akira Kurosawa). This resulted in an Exhibition “requiem d’une marionette”, presented at The House of Tomorrow by architect Frank Lloyd Wright in Tokyo. The album was also released at this exhibition.
The artwork collaboration with graphic art director Ito Keiji of Unidentified Flying Graphics (UFG) also represents an ongoing collaboration between the artists.
