After-Work concert: Sascha Ley & Laurent Payfert

Event date

7 December



Sascha Ley & Laurent Payfert

Sascha Ley & Laurent Payfert present the subtle art of combining singing and double bass. Their dreamlike and suggestive soundscapes sometimes evolve on the experimental side, with sound images, the use of extended vocal and instrumental techniques and narrative art. They also like to breathe new life into well-known songs by offering a bold blend of spontaneous and written compositions. The Gateshead International Jazz Festival described their music as fascinating and beautifully integrated. This defines the objective of the duo quite well: the sound invites the mind to travel.
