The Toronto-based composer John Kameel Farah is equally at home in electronic and classical music. That’s especially the case with dance-leaning electronic music and the non-Western classical music, notably from Middle Eastern traditions. In a recent extended podcast at resonancefm.com, he showcased some of his current work, and did a welcome job of explaining it (MP3). One particularly inspired piece begins at 11:18 in the MP3 (the intro starts at 9:49), mixing his elegant piano with crabwalk electronic percussion. It’s a kind of chamber music parallel to the more orchestral efforts of Roni Size (circa Reprazent).
