Don't miss the opportunity to hear the huge dynamic emotional capacity of the Grand Organ, the largest Grand Romantic organ in the Southern Hemisphere, with J. P. Shilo's unique artistic practice.

J. P. Shilo is one of Australia’s most enigmatic and reclusive musicians. His music is mysterious, delicate, unusual and otherworldly. Audiences can expect something truly magical and original from Jubjoté, a French term for emerging from a dream without knowing the end and trying to return to find out what happens.

A true polymath musician, JP demonstrates innate and intuitive mastery over a wide range of instruments including organ, piano, guitar, violin, bass, drums percussion, piano accordion and much more. His trademark approach and subtle atmospherics grace records by Mick Harvey, The Blackeyed Susans, Adalita and Rowland S. Howard. He has toured extensively with his own instrumental group Hungry Ghosts, solo and with various acts including Cut/Copy and The Triffids. Shilo is a genuine genre-defying shape-shifter, who in the one year opened for Leonard Cohen, Daft Punk and Blondie.

Outside of the "Rock" scene, Shilo has also turned his skills towards writing film scores, providing soundscapes for many Australian productions. His compositions are fragile in their minimalist beauty then able to suddenly burst open with stabbing intensity.

Support on the night will be from uber cool goth-rock heartthrobs Bitumen. The evening will also feature the performance of atmospheric new experimental electronic works for the Grand Organ by sound specialisation students from the Bachelor of Design program at RMIT.
