Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

Internationally acclaimed Australian-Japanese new media artist and musician, Benjamin Skepper, will present a new composition, building upon his Science Gallery Melbourne commissioned work “Pumping Blood” (2017).

Operating at the vanguard of Art + Science, and as part of his research into the human body as a musical instrument, Skepper will record Fujiko Nakaya’s heartbeat, which will form part of the original soundscape to be presented live for electronics and electric cello.
