Naqvi’s music is heard in many contexts, from art installations and traditional concert halls to his drumming in US underground trio Dawn of Midi. His compositions attempt to unite the sonic language of textured avant garde music by Scelsi and Xenakis, with the drone science of younger musicians like Hildur Guðnadóttir, Sarah Davachi and Kali Malone.
Agnus Dei Transmutations I and II are new works for modular synthesizer have an almost processional, religious character reminiscent of Gregorian chant. Inspired by the Liber Usualis, Naqvi used a recorder ensemble and time stretched their performance of certain repertoire from this book of Gregorian chants-transcribing and re-imagining them for modular synthesizer. Pt.I is a solo work for modular synthesizer and Pt.II is a full ensemble work for Naqvi and Cikada.
