John Kameel Farah in 'Unfolding' - Alwan for the Arts
April 10, 2010 -

John Kameel Farah's music hailed as a "unique fusion of renaissance and baroque counterpoint, experimental improvisation, middle-eastern texture, ambient minimalism, techno and electro-acoustics," Palestinian-Canadian pianist and composer John Kameel Farah makes his New York debut in tonight's concert, performing selections from his recent critically-acclaimed CD Unfolding. A virtuosic keyboardist simultaneously using piano, synthesizer sound sculpture, computer sequencing, and at times even harpsichord and organ, his creative efforts are fueled by exchanges of energies on a galactic and microscopic scale. His concerts are epic, symphonic experiences, existing in a special place somewhere between a classical concert hall and an experimental DJ set at a dance club.

About the artist:

“I wanted Unfolding to be like my favourite juggernaut classical pieces, something you could listen to hundreds of times because you're always hearing new details ..." (Hour Magazine, 2009).

John Kameel Farah is a Toronto-based composer, pianist, electronic musician and visual artist. Toronto’s NOWs Magazine named his as Best Pianist 2006 for his unique fusion of renaissance and baroque counterpoint, experimental improvisation, middle-eastern texture, ambient minimalism, techno and electro-acoustics, to synthesize an entirely original sound. An artist whose work truly reaches beyond the confines of modern definitions, he has had the unique fortune of being reviewed by the Toronto Star’s classical critic one day, gigging at an avant-garde jazz festival the next, and performing at an underground electronic event a few days later.

A virtuosic keyboardist simultaneously using piano, synthesizer sound sculpture, computer sequencing, and at times even harpsichord and organ, his creative efforts are fueled by exchanges of energies on a galactic and microscopic scale. His concerts are epic, symphonic experiences, existing in a special place somewhere between a classical concert hall and an experimental DJ set at a dance club.

Classically trained in composition and piano performance at the University of Toronto and he Royal Conservatory, John received the Glenn Gould Composition Award twice during his studies. The influences of the classical and avant-garde composers whose works he performed can be felt in his music, mixing with forays into free improvisation, minimalism, jazz, electro-acoustics, eastern scales, ambient and genres of electronic dance music such as Drum & Bass, Breakcore, Dubstep and IDM. he studied Middle-Eastern classical music at Simon Shaheen's Arabic Music Retreat.

John has been interviewed and broadcast by the CBC's radio programs The Signal, Brave New Waves, Two New Hours and Metro Morning. He performs regularly in Toronto, and has also given concerts in Amsterdam, London, Paris, Hamburg, across Canada, the U.S., Korea, the Middle-East and Mexico. In 2008 he pened for Kid Koala at the Guelph Jazz Festival, and gave a concert atop the Aztec Great Pyramid of Cholula with galactic visuals created by astronomer John Dubinski. In 1999 and 2002 he visited the Edward Said National Conservatory in the West Bank, giving performances and masterclasses in Ramallah and East Jerusalem.

Farah released his new CD Unfolding on Dross:tik Records this summer to rave reviews, followed by a 5-concert tour of England.

April 11, 2010 -

On Sunday, April 11, 2010 from 2-4 PM, in commemoration of the 65th anniversary of the martyrdom of Dietrich Bonhoeffer at the hands of the Nazi regime in Germany, Trinity Church will host an in-depth program that will examine this extraordinary man of faith. Mr. Bonhoeffer's moral and ethical stand against the injustices and brutality of Hitler and the Nazis earned him, among many scholars and religious leaders, the name of "Germany"s Jeremiah."

Dr. Clifford J. Green, a well-known Bonhoeffer expert, will provide an overview of Bonhoeffer's life and theology. Excerpts will be read from For Conduct and Innocents, a drama in verse loosely based on the years 1940-43 leading up to Bonhoeffer's arrest, written by Trinity parishioner and vestryman J. Chester Johnson. Trinity organist Robert Ridgell will discuss the words of Bonhoeffer that have become part of The Hymnal of 1982 and other books of music. Excerpts from Bonhoeffer's writings, including Letters and Papers from Prison, The Cost of Discipleship, and Ethics, will also be read during the program.

Paul Zunno Solo Acoustic Concert - New York City Center Studios
April 17, 2010 -

The best musician you've never seen on stage is set to absolve you of that deficiency with a series of concerts this and every Saturday evening throughout the summer. Paul Zunno spent seven years as lead guitarist for Wilson Pickett, whose ear for virtuosity was such that previous holders of the post included Jimi Hendrix and Duane Allman. The years and ears since have continued to bring acclamation. Zunno has seen his highly praised recordings licensed for television by producers who, like Pickett, weren't exactly short on options.

On stage, Zunno unleashes the kind of fretwork that ought to be followed by diagrammed, slow-mo replay; and he sings in a voice that will make yours seem stuck in falsetto. There is no minimum drink requirement, but be forewarned: few can resist buying one or all three of Zunno's CDs on their way out the door, where, often enough, the artist himself is available for handshakes and autographs.

Birthday celebrations and concomitant themes of longevity are pervasive in Chinese art of the Ming and Qing dynasties.

The exhibition will draw together works in many media from the Museum's collection to illuminate these auspicious themes.
