Pierre Lefeuvre (aka Saycet) is a french electronic composer. After studying to become a sound engineer, he pivoted to sound design and electronic music production. A trained guitarist and self-taught keyboard player, Pierre was able to give form to the techno and house music influences that have been with him since his teenage years. Although inspired as much by techno as by the post-rock of Explosions in the Sky, and by the Warp label as well as Slowdive, Massive Attack and Brian Eno, Saycet's music is unlike any other.

In 2003 he was interning from Vincent Arnardi, sound mixer for Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Claire Denis, and Luc Besson. Through this collaboration, he met actor-director Chantal Lauby and producer Claudie Ossard, who were looking for electronic music for the film Laisse tes mains sur mes hanches.

Over ten years later, Pierre returned to the cinema with Japanese director Hyoe Yamamoto with the documentary "Pour Le Bien De l'Entreprise: L'Affaire Olympus" about the financial scandal that rattle the Japanese corporation of the same name.

In 2017, Saycet produced the original soundtrack for Season 1 of the Tycoon series, directed by Louis Leterrier for Blackpills.

Between 2009 and 2013, he produced soundtracks for four France Culture radio plays. At the same period, he is also hired as the composer for the Centre Pompidou in Paris to score all exhibitions trailers.

At the beginning of 2017, Netflix used his track "Cité Radieuse" for the trailer of the series Abstract: The Art of Design. Saycet has also composed and produced soundtracks for numerous advertising campaigns: French Red Cross, Orange, Audi TT, Société Générale , EDF, L’Oréal, Peugeot 5008,…
