Jubjoté is a French term for emerging from a dream without knowing the end and trying to return to find out what happens.
City of Melbourne is proud to present the world premiere of a new commissioned work for the Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ: Jubjoté by J. P. Shilo.
J.P. Shilo is a renownded multi-instrumentalist. You'll find Shilo's trademark approach and subtle atmospherics gracing records by Mick Harvey, The Blackeyed Susans, Adalita and Rowland S. Howard, and he has toured extensively with his own group Hungry Ghosts, solo and with various acts, including Cut/Copy and The Triffids. A genre defying shape-shifter, in the one year he opened for Leonard Cohen, Daft Punk and Blondie.
Don't miss this opportunity to hear how the huge emotional dynamic capacity of the Grand Organ, the largest Grand Romantic organ in the Southern Hemisphere, will interact with J. P. Shilo's unique artistic practice.
Support on the night will be from special guests, Bitumen.
The evening will also feature the performance of atmospheric new experimental electronic works by sound specialisation students from the Bachelor of Design program at RMIT.
Prepare to be transported.
