A collaborative musical creation by 4 very different artists, Miaou is the opening statement of Mathieu Fiset's new record.

The 15/8 riff of the song called for an exceptional drummer and Larnell Lewis was in for the job...needless to say, he did deliver !! The drum solo alone is out of this world and is the climax of the whole song.

On guitar, the fingerstyle master Antoine Dufour crafted a signature part to complement the original piano composition, which then inspired violinist Tommy Gauthier to add his folk touch to the arrangement.

The addition of African reggae bass player Charly Yapo and Cuban percussionist Dayron Luis San Muguercia also contribute to the "world wide" vibe of the song. You can't quite pinpoint where the music could be from, but it is definitely human !


The title is a not-so-clever play on comes from the french expression "Mi-Août", meaning Mid-August...which is the 15th of the 15-08...or 15/8...the time signature of the main riff of the song...! But then it's also a cat noise so ?? Miaou !


Des Marteaux & Des Cordes


An instrumental, acoustic jazz fusion record, created in collaboration with Antoine Dufour, Tommy Gauthier and Larnell Lewis.

The album was recorded “live” at Studio Sismique in Quebec City, Canada, with little to no overdubs, with the exception of some additional players like Charly Yapo on bass, Dayron Luis San Muguercia on congas, Marie-Josée Morissette on violin and Jens Johansson on synth.

Musically, the music has a lot of latin fusion flavours, perhaps coming from Chick Corea and Snarky Puppy, while also having some progressive rock elements such as the 15/8 riff of “Miaou” and the aptly titled “Détour”, which features Larnell Lewis and Jens Johansson, burning through the track.
