“An amazing concert. Experimentation. We are in an urban jungle. We are in a bar. We are on the roof of a building in London. We are on a street, and the music is with us. As long as there are voices like Sascha’s and instruments such as Laurent's, everything will be fine.”
NEW ALBUM COMING SOON | RELEASE October 16
It's Alright To Be Everywhere
While we keep exploring the wide and wild universe of sounds, words, music and freedom our research also consists in finding the most organic way to combine and unite instant compositions with written ones. Beyond the vocal and lyrical part of the instrumentation, the exploration and combinations of even abstract sounds and expressions as an immediate form of communication are a vast and most beautiful field I love to explore. With Laurent on the bass the dialogue is as sparkling and fresh as ever, a quality that transmits the duo’s particular and exciting music in a natural way to the audience.
Discovering the unknown can be very exciting; the bridges to familiar sounds are built and transformed again. A journey, an adventure, curious ears are spoiled.
Our guests on the album are Jean Pascal Boffo - g, sfx and Murat Öztürk - piano - who both will join us for a couple of songs at the release concert
Album release on October 16, 2019 at Opderschmelz, Dudelange
The album will be available in shops, online on many download sites, and of course during the concerts.

Sascha Ley & Laurent Payfert present the subtle art of combining vocals and double bass. Based on mutual musical affinities, Luxembourg based vocalist, improviser, actress and poet and her congenial fellow musician from France open the doors to a special kind of sound journey that blends free improvisation, written and instant compositions with familiar sonorities. Dreamlike and suggestive soundscapes, experiments, sound painting, the use of extended vocal and instrumental techniques as well as narrative art take the audience to an always surprising, inviting and spirited experience off the beaten track.
