With a strong balance of emotional and analytical mind, Francois Mathian has been trained professionally as a musician and a scientist. He was inspired at an early age by his mother who was a violinist and physics professor to learn piano and violin and grew a taste for performing, creating and improvising music. Francois is known for his innovative use of electric violins to create soulful compositions and improvisations. In his search for what is buried in the deepest part of ourselves he has been exploring this path as a musical and spiritual quest, enrolling people into musical journeys connecting them to a deeper reality, and bringing them condensed emotion and life energy. After a classical training in Macon (Burgundy) and then Paris where he received training from French Classical soloist Jacques Saint-Yves, Francois was involved in the Paris and Lyon music scene as a violinist in various styles, from jazz standards to pop rock, latin jazz to country music.
