ArtistsJohn Kameel Farah (piano, organ, synthesisers)
Recording “Time Sketches” was a huge experiment for John Farah. The focus of the album is his 12-minute-long piece, Fantasia. This was originally written as a commissioned work for the Western Front Society in Vancouver and performed in Berlin in 2016. John revised and recorded this work for the Neue Meister series, and wrote and recorded all the other pieces on the album in only a month (a feat which would usually take many more months). For the recording, a concert hall belonging to a home for blind children on the outskirts of Hanover was rented, into which John moved during the recording period. This rather special situation is reflected in the composition of the album, which, apart from the ecstatically complex Fantasia, has a special mood and musical flavour. Every piece comes with one of John’s own illustrations in the booklet.
For the recording, besides the piano and the organ, John used the following instruments and software: Nord Lead 3 synthesiser, Moog Mother 32, Logic Pro, Ableton Live, Absynth, Reaktor, Focusrite Clarett 4Pre audio interface, and Neumann KM184 microphones.
The album was mixed and mastered by Berlin producer Guy Sternberg.
