Confluences, first EP of duo Youn & Sepas in summer 2021.

The project in 2 words :
Youn & Sepas is a young duo of soprano saxophone and piano which combines the warmth of oriental colours with the passion that the jazz and its improvisations can bring. Proposing a new musical language, invites you to discover its EP sound through the compositions, a rich and daring world.

Confluences, represent a start for the duo.

The origines of the project, narrated in our way... :

Once upon a time, in the fabulous land of Rennes, there was a young pianist emeritus who already has two albums out in Iran, Sepas Sadrenoori. This Iranian, who has been plunged in Persian tradition from the youngest age, and had freshly arrived in France, could not stop complaining. “What boring it is the life without my future friend Youn !“  He exclaimed with his adorable Persian accent. 
 
Came September, autumn and its humid climate, its chrysanthemums, and its golden leaves. Then followed the start of the new year of Musicology studies. During a night of fun at a tavern in Rennes, the very Breton Breton, Youn Lebreton, so Breton that he is a bagpipe player (well… a saxophonist too), caught the eye of our young protagonist. 
As a matter of fact, he played a saxophone solo from the future, with oriental vibes. Our little Sepas found himself taken aback when hearing this jazz improvisation. 
 
 No sooner than the next evening, our two minstrels were invited by their comrades for a night of festivities and beverages. They were requested to enliven the get-together in the best way possible. It was with enthusiasm that a long and intoxicating improvisation emanated from the duo. The saxophone embraced the piano keys with its powerful vibrations, the piano’s depth resonated and mesmerised the room, both musical tones perfectly coming together.  
Subjugated, the group of people stayed silent. Once they had finished, the two musicians gave each other a complicit glance and understood that they were going to make great music together. That is when the Youn & Sepas Duo was born. 
 
 The days past and King Emmanuel the 1st was faced with the hard task of announcing a second national lockdown. Nina, a pretty singer from Vitré, offered that our two musicians endure the lockdown in her humble abode. What followed was a long month of musical labour, during which the Youn & Sepas Duo’s repertoire was established. Once done, they decided to share it with the public in the form of an EP (a musical format still uncommon in the XIIIth century…). Its name ? Confluences.
 
Rumour has it that they in need of a few a gold coins to finance their project.

The project more concretely :

the EP Confluences include 7 titles of original compositions, in duo of soprano saxophone and piano. Each melody consists of soloists,  unusual improvisions, and of course of a particular alchemy that characterises the Youn & Sepas’s duo. 

  • Youn LEBRETON : soprano saxophone 
  • Sepas SADRENOORI : piano
  • Nina ASLANAUT (featuring) : voice

Confluences is the first project of scope lead by the duo, with the crazy willing of sharing their passionate creations.
