John Kameel Farah
John Kameel Farah is a Canadian composer-pianist. He studied composition and performance at the University of Toronto, where he received the Glenn Gould Composition Award twice during his studies.
Farah now focuses primarily on his own creative hybrid of improvisation, composition and electronic music. Simultaneously using piano, synthesizer, computer, and at times harpsichord, his solo performances exist somewhere between the concert hall and an experimental DJ set, mixing forays into free improvisation, jazz, electro–acoustics, middle-eastern modes, and ambient minimalism and distilling them into cohesive, imaginative surrealistic structures.
