"LE SON NÉVÉOL"

L'observation d'instruments prestigieux, aux sonorités riches et complexes, concourt en parallèle, à développer son sens esthétique et sa quête permanente de l'identité sonore de l'instrument.

En 2011 et en 2018, l'aboutissement de deux modèles personnels, sublimés par un vernis dichroïque jaune d'or, concrétise plusieurs années de recherche.

Héritage des artisans de la Renaissance italienne, l'emploi d'un traitement des bois spécifique, perpétué en France par un cénacle très restreint, allié à ce vernis, se conjugue à l'esthétique du son, pour marquer de son sceau un « violon Névéol ».

C'est auprès de ses mentors en lutherie, Tom Sparks et Derrick Coons, à l'Indiana University de Bloomington, que Mathieu Névéol affûte son double cursus d'artisan-luthier et d'interprète-violoniste.

Mathieu Névéol studied violin making with his mentors, Tom Sparks and Derrick Coons, at Indiana University in Bloomington, where he honed his skills as both a craftsman-luthier and as a performer-violinist.

Years of experience with prestigious instruments, with their rich and complex sonorities, has contributed to Mathieu’s aesthetic sense during his quest for the precise sound signature for his violins.

In 2011, Mathieu designed his first unprecedented violin model to capture this unique sound.  He continued to build upon this model with years of research.  His current violins are the outcome of two individual violin models from 2011 and 2018, which were enhanced with his distinctive golden yellow dichroic varnish to further contribute to the unique sound of the instrument.

Mr. Névéol uses a specific wood treatment, received from the tradition of Italian Renaissance craftsmen and utilized by a very select few in France. This, combined with his signature varnish, creates a violin worthy of the “Névéol”seal.
