Simple Rotation is an open living system that is in entropy, moving towards equilibrium. It’s a rigid yet fluid body that maintains itself while it develops and evolves, inspired by process and progress - the essence of life.

It combines abstract, atmospheric landscapes that shift and evolve from a rigid system to an organic one, with chaotic and orderly spaces that interact with each other while breathing to the music. Form and music work together in harmony to orchestrate a powerful balance.

All the seemingly interdependent dualities of order and chaos, rigid and fluid, come together, as complementary forces.

Likewise, the music is both rigid and elastic, while the living system keeps moving and pulsing into a constantly flourishing, fluid space.  Musically, harmonies and textures unfold against a backdrop of a onenote synth/piano ostinato.

John Kameel Farah is a Canadian composer / pianist. 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.

His latest album,Time Sketches is now available on vinyl through the Neue Meister website.
