Dom Pérignon Commission 2012

2012 Tokyo


A collaboration with the worlds most famous champagne house Dom Pérignon in partnership with Diners Club International and CitiBank Japan.

Commissioned to compose, creatively direct the audio and visual design, perform live, and post produce the YouTube Commercial video . “The Power of Creation” was inspired by Dom Pérignon’s 2003 vintage champagne, the commission including compositions for 3 other champagne vintages, including the prized 1996 Oenothèque.

The conceptual and interactive installation featured a live surround sound recording of the Dom Pérignon Vintage 2003 champagne “bubbles”, recorded on a custom designed hydrophone in 4.0 ch surround sound.
This unique sound sample may be heard at the start and end of the video.

Skepper also inspired a 5 course degustation which were complemented by visual projections for each champagne vintage, imagining a color, a natural element, and adjectives describing and invoking the elegance of each champagne.

This premium event was presented to VIP clients of Moët & Hennesey, Diners Club International and Citibank Japan at the FENDI Showroom Space F in Omotesando, Tokyo.
