Video interview with Berlin Music TV
Nicolas Demuth, better known as Parra for Cuva, is a German electronic music producer and DJ. He grew up in a small town close to Göttingen in the state of Lower Saxony, Germany. When he was 11 years old he learned to play the piano and became interested in pieces of the French composer Debussy. After his piano teacher had changed he started to be engaged with Jazz improvisations, with a focus on the jazz piano. In 2009 Demuth started to print out midi piano notes with the help of a simple program and then he mixed his first piano pieces with hip hop elements.
After his A-levels Demuth moved to Berlin to study Audio Design. He first called himself Natur-Klang before he decided to choose the stage name Parra for Cuva. This name originates in various Spanish words and means between the world / for / Cuva.
The songs produced by Nicolas Demuth combine elements of house and pop music, piano compositions and downtempo. Many electronic pieces of him find their origin in piano music through sketches or with the help of complete solo pieces. Artists such as Ludovico Einaudi and Bonobo are Nicolas Demuth’s sources of inspiration next to many others. His set Plains of Ostara starts with Einaudis piece Andare. Next to the piano many other instruments such as a kalimba, steeldrums, carillons, guitars and accordions can be found in Nicolas Demuths productions.
After quite a few releases Nicolas Demuths debut album Majouré (French for superior force) was released on the label Lenient Tales Recordings in January 2015. A total of twelve songs make up the track list, with iTunes offering a bonus song. The song Devi features hip hop artist Nieve, the title track Majouré features – Casey K. and the song Champa features Monsoonsiren. All songs feature distinct foundations of electronic music mixed with a variety of musical influences of other genres.
2016 Nicolas second album “Darwīš” has been released. After finishing up their semester at University, Nicolas and Jonas – or Parra for Cuva & Senoy – decided to pack all their gear into their camper and go on a road-trip down to the eastern coast of Spain. The car filled with all kinds of gear, from synths to speakers, guitars, and percussions amongst other tools and toys, three creative weeks ensued, creating music with a view out to the sea. While taking everything in and doing daily trips, the two were able to create enough song ideas in three weeks to spent the rest of the year at home in the studio to finish all arrangements and mixes. Inspired by the Spanish way of life in a small and historically rich port town, a stark contrast to life Berlin, and soaking up diverse musical influences, the individual titles are highly personal and reflect on specific emotions or intimate experiences. During the arrangement of the title-song, the percussion track was accidentally dragged to infinity, which resulted in a trance inducing meditative sound that gave them the idea for the title. Watching turkish dervish dancers while listening should therefore enhance the listening experience.
Mood in C is the latest EP by Parra for Cuva. Following the highly acclaimed album “Darwīš” together with Senoy on Project Mooncircle, the release is a collection of songs that have been created in and around the last year. The title song “Mood in C” was composed after the ethiopian pentatonic scale that is deeply intertwined with both the spirituality of the people but also the war-torn and deeply trenched history of the country. Furthermore it combines guitar effects with synths and all sounds were recorded analog with the help of effect units. The song “Unfinished Colours” together with “Others” is the first collaboration of a future joint project of the two friends. All percussion was either recorded on journeys and travels or at home with everyday objects to give the EP a unique sound.
