For his 4th opus, Nicolas Parent renews the rich experience of the duo with :
Yom (clarinets), Pierre Durand (guitar) and Kentaro Suzuki (double bass) his traveling companion for a decade.
A daring bet : partly recorded in an old cement factory (the silo), transformed into an artist’s studio. A place with incredible and unique acoustics!
Intuitions is full off Nicolas’ compositions, while leaving room for pure improvisations.
His guitar is sparkling and soft, a bit nostalgic, always determined and reassuring. Sometimes percussive and lively, sometimes ethereal and creative, it explores new textures.
Far from a hectic and tormented world, this album is the wish for a calm and peaceful ideal, where quiet happiness reigns.
A work in the form of therapy for the audience, with its suspended moments and spaces of plenitude.
Nicolas Parent, wizard of silence and purity, takes us on a journey in a gorgeous album : lunar and meditative. Simply beautiful !

It’s with the piece “Doux mirage” (“Gentle mirage”) that two magicians, Vincent Segal and Nicolas Parent, reveal to us their captivating and thrilling 3rd opus. Subtle whispers flow from the magical cello and enchanting guitar.
The beauty of this new work, deep, rich and fascinating, lays in its elegant melodies : a pure delight for the ears and a celebration for the soul.
In trio with his fellow travelers, Nicolas achieves a remarkable symbiosis, in which sounds rejoice in perfect harmony.
In this perfection, the guitar breathes, the double bass sings and the joyful percussion flourish, through clever rhythmic exploration.
An authentic artist of sophisticated compositions, Nicolas Parent delights us once again with his poetry, whose pure sound hightlights a heightened minimalism.
