Hello,
I'm Mathieu Artu

Music composer from France

I've been playing music since forever.

Since march 2015, I am TAUR

I've been working under the name of RQTN for 6 years now, releasing 2 EPs and 4 albums. It's basically modern classical music.
I also do a lot of indie-rock (I was the founder and lead singer/guitarist of Kid North before I left the band in late 2013) and electronica.

Here you'll get a selection of my work.
Every sound and piece of music you'll hear on this page was composed, played and produced by me.
I can create/mix/master a song in pretty much every style of music, so yes, you can contact me for advertising / licensing.
If you want to work with me (I sure want to work with you), send me an e-mail at : mathieu.artu.public@gmail.com
