Silence Presents provides an accessible venue for touring and professional artists to perform for the Guelph community.

Prolific musician and master of the eight-string guitar, Thomas Carbou is a fan of sound. With the narrative theme of improvisation and the desire to surprise, the guitarist, composer, arranger, percussionist and sampler unveils a bold and pleasantly complex music where freedom is king. Flirting at times with the stigmata of traditional music, folk and song, his universe that describes itself as electro-jazz unfolds without resistance, out of time and barriers.

Having, over the years, taken part in several international projects (in France, Switzerland, Belgium, Spain, Vietnam, the United States, Canada, etc.) which have led to many successful artistic collaborations, he was awarded the Creation / Residence Award of the Ville de Québec, as part of the 2007 RIDEAU Fellowship, for his In Motion album. He also signed, in 2010, Denis Villeneuve’s documentary “Remembering the Ashes – Regards sur Incendies”, directed by Anaïs Barbeau-Lavalette (The Ring and The Little Giants), winner of a Gemini Award in the category “Best Documentary – Culture”. Evolving sometimes solo, sometimes collectively, Thomas Carbou inspires and creates, as he breathes.
