mathieu bec

batteur compositeur /drummer composer


for more than 30 years

sculpts a minimalist sound from silence to thunder

based on natural frequencies and acoustic improvisation

His outsider minimalist aesthetic summons an archaic paganism

by playing the "void" with his drumset

His drumskin becomes a rubbed objects 's surface in a slidy surrounded sound

 Scuplting natural feedbacks,  this atypical percussionist uses various "concrets"tools as stones, water, wood pieces....

and questions the present time by breaking the codes of our physiological perceptions

the basic solo of percussions becomes a dark shamanic trance....unique experience !!!" (G.Chevreau)
