The "Belle de Nuit" Piano EP sheet music book includes not only the complete sheet music for the EP, but also provides additional information about the tracks and includes stunning photographs from the creative process. It's a great addition to any music lover's library or as a decorative piece in a music room. Parra for Cuva’s piano EP, Belle de Nuit, picks up reverberations from the musicians’ past. Perhaps unbeknownst to most of his listeners - who primarily recognize the artist for the mellow electronic tracks he’s become internationally famous for - the piano has been Nicolas Demuth’s longtime companion, a relationship began all the way back in his childhood. “I have been playing the piano since I was twelve years old,” he reminisces. Thanks to an early teacher who opened his mind to the joys of improvisation and jazz music, the instrument slowly went from being just a companion to an indispensable tool for him as a composer. For the following eighteen years the instrument would be key to Parra for Cuva’s musical output - “Most of my tracks were first sketched out on the piano”- even if standing slightly at the background to his electronic set-ups. Now, Parra for Cuva thinks it’s time to bring the instrument to the fore. With his first solo piano EP, the artist returns to a moment of solitude, before he’d stepped into the world of festival stages and collaborations, in a moving tribute to his past and the instrument at its heart.
