De organographia are Phil and Gayle Neuman, musicians, teachers, and instrument builders who engage in the performance of historical music from a variety of periods. They have received international recognition as performers and scholars of Ancient Greek music and have several recordings of this repertoire on the Pandourion label available from North Pacific Music.

They teach at various workshops on the west coast and in the midwest and direct the annual Early Music Guild of Oregon Workshop each fall. The Neumans have performed at the Smithsonian Institution, The Getty Center, Cleveland Museum of Art, Rice University, Amman Conservatory in Jordan, the Bodrum Crusader Castle Archeological Museum in Turkey, and at ancient theater sites in Epidaurus, Delphi, and Rhodes. They are members of The Trail Band, and have performed with the Handel & Haydn Society Orchestra, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, Magnificat, and Cappella Romana. They appear in the 2016 movie, “Buddymoon,” and recorded music for the soundtrack of the 2016 movie “Ben-Hur.”
