Cloaked under a veil of electronic music and anchored in experimental Jazz, Piloot steers its unpredictable trance machine into a Cosmic Climax.
Piloot is an instrumental trio formed in Brussels (Belgium) in 2015 by flutist Florian Guibert, double bass player Cyrille de Haes and drummer JP De Gheest.
Characterised by their love for improvised and avant-garde music as well as their involvement into the multidisciplinary performance scene, Piloot opens the gate of synesthetic music and explores uncharted sonic landscapes. With every single performance, sometimes alongside visual artists, dancers, writers or featuring other musicians, the trio has shown an all-too-rare artistic integrity. One might think of early Kraftwerk, Brian Eno, Jon Hassel, Cluster.
« Adventurous music mixing a variety of genres to create an impressive and surprising result. Dreamy and astral, or just trance-generating and kraut, these are the two facets of the fascinating trio Piloot. » Gonzo Circus

In 2019, Piloot decides to formalise its multidisciplinary meetings and its deep desire to experiment. To do so, Piloot develops the concept of Laboratoire Sonore. On a monthly basis and for 3 consecutive sessions, the trio takes over a venue and, sometimes, invites particular artists to perform with. This form of performance allows the group to develop and deepen – with the urgency that implies the presence of the public – other artistic aspects such as scenography, sound diffusion or the concepts of musical interactions. https://youtu.be/ExvlfsOGG3Q
