Born from a french Canadian mother and a Palestinian father and raised in Lachute, QC, Guillaume Jabbour is a musician and sound artist. He is interested in using sound art as a way of bringing communities together. Guillaume lives with his wife and two children in Gore, QC, where he can often be seen with a handheld recorder waiting for the perfect moment to capture the lonely call of the loon.

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

As a gigging and touring musician I play folk and roots music. As a workshop facilitator, I specialize in sound-based projects and the creation of works to be listened to, encouraging students to develop their appreciation of sound.
