I am the “ghost cellist” for the House of Mirrors at the Luminato Festival

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be donning a wild costume and improvising on cello and voice at the House of Mirrors, installed outdoors at Harbourfront in Toronto. I’ll be playing between 8pm and 11pm Friday, June 14 and Thursday, June 21. Many thanks to Luminato Artistic Director Naomi Campbell!

Don’t miss the North American premiere of House of Mirrors, an optical adventure for all ages, where nothing is quite what it seems and getting out is an art. House of Mirrors is a reality-bending, sensory-altering, mind-dizzying experience that has enchanted audiences across the southern hemisphere. Sitting at over 12.5ft and weighing in at over 55 tonnes, this reflective wonder makes its North American debut, taking Toronto by storm, simultaneously mesmerizing, disorienting and delighting Luminato audiences. Optical illusions meet vanity in this house-sized kaleidoscope where reflections are fragmented: shadow, ghost, stranger, or is it just you? Nothing is what it seems as you stumble around thousands of bewildering reflections.

  1. I was lucky enough to catch you at Luminato House of Mirrors yesterday evening. Your music was beautiful, haunting amd ethereal, your costume amazing and a perfect compliment to your music. Is there or are there recordings of that performance or music?

    Fabulous performance!
    Thanks for your time.

    • Oh! I’m so sorry to have just seen this now. Apparently my site isn’t forward messages the way it’s supposed to. Gotta look into that.
      Thank you for dropping a line. I really appreciate your comments. No, there was no recording of the performance and the music was all improvised. It will have to remain but a memory! But perhaps you’d appreciate my solo album: High Road Haven. https://jengillmor.bandcamp.com/album/high-road-haven
