Best of Deconstructing Dinner Jan-May ’07

bestofindexFrom its inception in January 2006, Deconstructing Dinner has been accompanied by the recognizable theme music created by Nelson-area resident Adham Shaikh. Titled “Infusion”, this piece is found on Adham’s 2004 release “Fusion”. In 2006, Fusion was nominated for a Juno award in the World Music category.

On this broadcast, Producer Jon Steinman teamed up with Adham Shaikh to create a production that highlights all shows aired between January and May 2007. Upon compiling segments that capture the essence of these broadcasts, Jon passed the work off to Adham who then mastered a soundtrack of predominantly unreleased material.

Adham Shaikh is a composer, producer and sound designer currently living near Nelson, BC. He has been producing music for the past 18 years and has released 4 solo albums, 2 collaborative full-length albums and numerous individual compositions over the course of his career. As a performer, Adham has played across Canada and internationally at festivals, film events and clubs – both solo and together with a wide variety of accompanying world musicians. Operating from his Sonicturtle Music Studio, he is currently at work on a number of multimedia projects while actively recording and composing his next albums.

Acting as the Narrator for this broadcast is Kootenay Co-op Radio’s K.Linda Kivi, co-host of the weekly program “The EcoCentric”.
