John Kameel Farah

John Kameel Farah is a Canadian pianist and composer who embraces aspects of Early & Experimental Music, Improvisation, Middle-Eastern Music rhythms and modes and all forms of Electronic Music. He studied piano and composition at the University of Toronto, where he was a two-time recipient of the Glenn Gould Composition Award, and afterwards took private lessons with minimalist composer Terry Riley in California. In performance he combines the piano with effects processing and synthesizers, moving freely between improvised fugues, drone soundscapes, Near Eastern scales and modes, and driving, asymmetrical rhythms, referring to it as “Baroque-Middle-Eastern-Cyberpunk”.
