ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
John Kameel Farah along with Dross:tik Records presents “Unfolding”, the second full length album from the long time Toronto based pianist and electronic music producer. “Unfolding” exhibits Farah’s creativity and vast musical influences, blending experimental jazz, surrealistic orchestral textures, along with electronic music production, deep bass lines and Arabic percussion into a seamless cacophony of morphing time signatures and head spinning rhythms. Composed and performed on his piano and Fender Rhodes (electric keyboard), Farah displays his talent for arrangement, virtuosity and artistry, weaving his pieces with modern electronic music production techniques. At times, the pianos are multi-tracked, giving the impression of several pianists performing with an orchestra or jazz ensemble. Drawing inspiration from Middle-Eastern influences and his classical piano training, Farah merges the traditional and avant-garde classical techniques, Jazz fusion and Middle-Eastern musical landscapes while wielding into the fray the genres of drum and bass, electronica, breakcore and dubstep. The diversity of influences and complexity of the arrangement results in an album that is both challenging to the listener and pleasurable to the ear.
