J. P. Shilo - Jubjoté

Featuring the Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ

Enigmatic multi-instrumentalist J.P. Shilo emerges from the shadows to present Jubjoté, a beautifully esoteric live reimagining of the Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ.

Best known for his work with legendary Melbourne band Hungry Ghosts, as well as contributions to classic albums by Rowland S. Howard, Mick Harvey, Adalita, The Triffids and the Blackeyed Susans, Shilo’s unique musicianship is world-renowned. Here he lends his magic touch to the grand organ, guitar, synthesiser, electronics, sound collage and spoken word to produce a work of singular artistic vision.

Guided by the eternal motion of the Shepard Tone, the listener is plunged beyond the comfort of normalcy to consider a shifting subject position that cannot escape the churn of cultural progress. As L.J. Spruyt’s cover art suggests, Jubjoté invokes a reckoning with multiple concurrent realities. Shilo’s Grand Organ is by turns elegant, sick, beautiful and decrepit.

Backed for this live performance by Hungry Ghosts violinist & co-conspirator T. J. Howden, Shilo leads the capacity Town Hall audience through oscillations of neoclassical focus, wild-eyed psychedelia and avant-garde fragmentation.
