John Kameel Farah
John Kameel Farah is a Toronto-based composer, pianist and visual artist. He studied composition and piano performance at the University of Toronto, where he received the Glenn Gould Composition Award twice during his studies. Toronto's NOW Magazine named him as Best Pianist 2006. In 2011 Farah received the K.M. Hunter Artist Award for Music from the Ontario Arts Council.
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. He has also composed extensively for solo piano as well as for string quartet, percussion groups, wind ensembles and electronic arrangements.
Farah is a member of the Canadian Electronic Ensemble, as well as the Electronic-Composer-in-Residence for Soundstreams Canada for 2013.
