Born in Lebanon, Radwan came to Canada in 1993 where he put down roots in the Montreal music scene. He is still based in Montreal where he is a partner and recording engineer at the renowned Hotel2Tango recording studio. Radwan also regularly spends time in the Beirut music scene and has developed a unique musical melding of contemporary experimental Arabic music and analog electronic music.

For many years this was only an infrequent live performance project, a marriage of sight, sound, and space using carefully crafted film loops projected throughout the venue via multiple 16 mm projectors. With the support and encouragement of Constellation Records, Radwan recorded and released JIMH's first record, Mo7it Al-Mo7it (Ocean of the Ocean), last year.

He is currently working on new material and shared a piece of it tonight on the show.
