Ether: Ghostpoet + Soap&Skin
Over the past 11 years, Southbank Centre’s Ether Festival has celebrated innovation, technology and experimentation staging cross-genre and cross-artform events such Jonny Greenwood and Thom Yorke playing alongside London Sinfonietta (2005), performances of Stravinsky’s Rites with dancer and 3D visuals (2011), appearances by Lou Reed, David Byrne, Brian Eno, Gil Scott-Heron and celebrations of composers ranging from Thomas Adès (2008) to Iannis Xenakis (2011). Ether festival returns in October 2012 for its 11th edition with a programme featuring UK and London premieres, a mix of electronics, classical music, visual arts, dance, and a celebration of John Cage’s centenary.
Ghostpoet (aka Obaro Ejimiwe) is a softly-spoken rapper with a gentle presence, muddling through the treacle of modern life. In 2011 his debut album was amongst the nominees for the prestigious Mercury Prize award.
Although his music may fall under the rap banner, his third album, 2015's 'Shedding Skin', features guest contributions from Nadine Shah, Lucy Rose and Maximo Park’s Paul Smith. Unlike his previous albums, ‘Shedding Skin’ was recorded with a traditional live set up with what has become his touring band; Joe Newman on guitar, bass player, John Calvert and John Blease on drums.
