This perfectly close-knit group uses an impressive variety of instruments (violin, guitar, keyboards, bass, drums, percussions, flutes, cello, voices) to create an original repertory based on the binary rhythm. This group mixes African and West Indian rhythms with the modernity of actual jazz, the energy of rock and the refinement of classical music to produce a successful fusion music.

Philippe CAUVIN's group proposes an original, powerful, energetic, exquisite and forceful progressive music which is propelled along by a vigorous rhythmic section which imparts a thrilling rhythmic pulsation to the themes. Philippe CAUVIN's voiced onomatopoeias and high pitched vocals soar above the complicated melodic structures created and elaborated by the rhythmic section. His vocal frenzy combines with the febrility and electric madness developed by his incisive interventions on the guitar. This is a burning, intense music, inflamed by the guitar's lightning flashes and frenzied flights. It mixes beauty with sensitiveness and a power to create an iron-like music.

Gilbert ARTMAN's group which initially comprised only saxophones went on to include choruses even though it continued with the same musical style, that of repetitive, anguished, inhuman music.
