The New Album, Electronic Genes, In Stores Now

Recorded from nature and the surroundings, sounds were transformed using electronic devices, combined with other sounds produced by music instruments; result in a fusion between electronic music and various music genres. The album features nine pieces, each its own entity taking the emotions on a roller coaster from happiness to sadness, calm to anger, passion to contemplation.

Yousef Kawar is a musician with over a 15 year experience in music composing and sound engineering. His music is made up of mashed up electronic beats mixed with ambient sounds and a touch of rock and jazz. Kawar’s playing the guitar is an audiovisual experience; he masterfully employs the instrument to illustrate a dynamic range of emotions, sharpened with his academic training in composing music.

Kawar incorporates visual effects as background to his live performances. As his pieces do not speak of concrete situations, they are an attempt to connect with the unreachable, subtle side of being, something beyond the verbal vocabulary-a careful preservation of a spiritual state. This music demands a relaxed listener to appreciate its ethereal qualities.

Here are some photos from the launching day:

An authentic musician, Yousef Kawar's music speaks through different moods and variations. With 15 years of music composing and sound engineering experience under his belt, he illustrates music by mashing up electronic beats with ambient sounds, and mixing them with a touch of rock, jazz music. Yousef's high education degrees in music, coupled with his intrinsic talent, gave him a special edge in composing such truly unique music over the years.

When listening to Yousef's music, and watching his frenzied fingers blur through the strings, you could clearly feel the strength of his guitar as it weeps and laughs, and moves the inside out. Yousef is also largely interested and involved in the background visuals played during his live performances. His pieces don’t express tangible situations, they rather attempt to connect with the unreachable, subtle side of being, beyond verbal vocabulary; when the connection happens, he expresses it through music notes. In general, Yousef's expressions may be described as a careful preservation of a spiritual state. Like his style, his instrumentals’ titles are typically unique, throwing the listener away from the concrete perception of the piece. One thing is for sure…his listeners ought to be relaxed and not seek an immediate answer!

يوسف قعوار موسيقي وصاحب خبرة تتجاوز الـ 15 عام في التأليف الموسيقي وهندسة الصوت. يصنع الموسيقى بمزج الأصوات الإلكترونيّة المختلفة معا وإدخال عناصر صوتيّة من المحيط مع لمسة من الروك والجاز. عزف يوسف قعوار للقيثار تجربة صوتيّة بصريّة حيث يستخدم الآلة بحرفيّة عالية ليثير نطاقا واسعا من الانفعالات، صقلتها دراسته الأكاديميّة للتوليف الموسيقى.

يوظّف يوسف قعوار التأثيرات البصريّة كخلفيّة لعروضه الأدائيّة الحيّة. لا تتحدث قطعه الموسيقى عن أوضاع ملموسة، بل هي محاولات للتواصل مع الغير ملموس، ذلك الجانب الخفيّ من الوجود البعيد عن التعبير الكلامي، محاولات للحفاظ على الحالة الروحانيّة. تتطلب هذه الموسيقى من المستمع الاسترخاء لتذوّق صفاتها الأثيريّة.

The City One Minutes Amman

Cities change every hour. Every hour of the day is represented in one video of exactly sixty seconds. All together it is a portrait of a city in 24 minutes made by different people. 24 individual videos make one collective art work.

The video project City One Minutes Amman is part of The City One Minutes. It is initiated by The One Minutes foundation in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The videos are presented on the cityoneminutes website, a joint initiative of The One Minutes foundation and Holland Doc/VPRO, a digital documentary film platform of Dutch broadcasting companies. In 2010 the winning portrait of each city is presented in a mix at the World Expo in Shanghai.
I've participated in two films / two minutes (Music & Videos) and music & sound design for another two films 1:00AM-2:00AM & 11:00PM-12:00AM by Mohammad Alqaq
