Father and son, Patrick and Jonathan - MATHIS, join their musical sensibilities in a playful and experimental duo. As they are both perforated cardboard recorders, they explore the possibilities offered by the use of two "barrel organs". Together they explore musical domains with jazz and contemporary accents, on existing works and personal compositions. A music that grooves, surprising and unique!

With their mastery of the crank and their musical freedom, the Mathis play with tempo, emancipate themselves from the pulsation, destructure the mechanics and thus take a new look at the musical writing of the mechanical organ. Each instrument has its own sound, and each player has his own musical path.
