Xavier Gazon


Immerse yourself in this immersive musical experience with electrokinetic instruments and sound synthesis.

‘TabooTaboo’ is a musical project orchestrated by sound artist Xavier Gazon, creator of unique instruments powered by electromechanical elements and sensors interacting with a modular synthesizer.

Each instrument in ‘TabooTaboo’ is a work of art in its own right, capable of generating unheard-of sounds. But the magic happens when these mechanisms come to life, triggering automated instruments and creating a captivating and poetic symphony. In each performance, Xavier Gazon improvises an enchanting story, transporting the audience on a sensory journey through exotic lands and imaginary soundscapes.

TabooTaboo explores concepts such as ‘sound synthesis,’ ‘sound physics,’ ‘acoustics,’ ‘electromechanics,’ and ‘do-it-yourself.’ It thus offers a captivating performance both for music and science enthusiasts.

Xavier Gazon is a composer, sound artist, and performer who pushes the boundaries of sound art by exploring electromechanics and sound synthesis. Let yourself be surprised by a world where music and technology meet, where vibrations and sound waves are the raw materials of a fascinating artistic performance.

Mâalem Driss Filali & Koyo de Bxl

Discover Gnawa music

The music, singing, and dancing of the Gwanas are part of Moroccan folk culture. Originally, their musical performances were religiously inspired. However, the meeting between Gwana and Jazz musicians in the early ’70s made the music known outside the community as well.

Driss Filali is a ‘mâalem’ or Gwana master, and one of the key artists from the Moroccan diaspora in Brussels. He is a member of MetX groups such as Marockin’ Brass and Banda Quetzal, and is the co artistic coordinator of the Gwana training program Karkaba.

As the son of mâalem Selam, Driss Filali grew up in Morocco in a cummunity where Gwana culture is omnipresent. At a young age, he learned to play music with his father and his cousin, mâalem Hamid. Together, they perform during various lila’s, traditional spiritual healing rituals, in Morocco and at festivals in France and Belgium.
