Résonance, c’est le Périscope qui donne carte blanche à la jeune scène artistique française ainsi qu’à des chercheurs et journalistes.

Ensemble, ils proposent une face originale et singulière du jazz d’aujourd’hui.

Pour l’occasion, la salle de concert sera transformée en véritable café culturel, avec une sélection de documents, ouvrages et magazines, et sera ouverte sur l’extérieur avec la terrasse.

Évènement en écho au festival Jazz à Vienne et en partenariat avec la métropole de Lyon.

He is now the editor of Jazz News.

In 2009 with Nikola Cindric he founded Criss Cross Jazz, a blog that closely follows the new jazz scene. He released a book in 2014, Best of Criss Cross called "We walked in jazz and not the left foot" (2014, SKOPP), which then rings the end of the blog.

In his notes, Mathieu Durand "explodes into a thousand pieces the clichés circulating on jazz: a music of the past, a music of elevator, a music for old, an academic music, a nerdy music, a music and musicians serious and boring ".
With a sharp and original eye, he participates in the renewal of jazz criticism in France by bringing a funny, impertinent, curious look while being on the ground and fleeing the beaten track.
