Jo has performed in a diverse array of musical acts in his career of over a decade, from swing and rock, to musical comedy, and an ABBA-tribute solo banjo show. His current solo project takes folk-tune arrangement to its extremities and beyond in works of captivating originality. Irish, Asian, and Arabic influences find a surprising affinity with contemporary avant-garde aesthetics and found-sound composition in his performances for guitar and sound-objects. Jo is currently releasing an album, Sillage (a French term for ‘wake’ or ‘trail’, which is used by perfumers to describe the extent to which a scent lingers in the air), in May 2015 on Psychopyjama Records, as well as making his academic career in music philosophy.
