Orgue de Barbarie Swing – Patrick Mathis

17 September 2 pm & 3:30 pm


New horizons for the barrel organ
More than 35 years ago, Patrick Mathis fell into a hole from which he never emerged. It was one of those holes punched in the paper tape of a barrel organ and, even though it was tiny, it opened up completely new horizons for him. Since then, he’s been obsessively creating arrangements for his mechanical instrument and, in the course of this, has criss-crossed all the conceivable musical worlds ranging from baroque and jazz, chanson and new music, Stravinsky and Michael Jackson. His vast number of ‘perforations’ make the softest, most melodic, most monumental and wildest sounds. And he’ll be bringing all of them along when he comes to perform for us. For free. And outdoors.
