Qasim Naqvi

Sound Off with Katy Henriksen


Qasim Naqvi is a drummer and composer based in Brooklyn. As the drummer for acoustic trio Dawn of Midi, he’s toured with Radiohead. As a film score composer his sounds have been featured on HBO, The Sundance Channel and at art institutions such as The Guggenheim. He composes for contemporary chamber ensembles like yMusic and for symphony orchestras. He’s also an analog synths wizard. In this episode I talk to Qasim about how his lifelong pursuit of music began with a middle school crush, how composing with analog synths is like working with an improvising performer and so much more. Plus! I get to play some full tracks handpicked from his recordings.
