"I like to deliver my work in small portions; portions that are microscopically forged by a phenomenologically-painstaking process that is not to be fixed or normalized."
Cameron Shafii is an Iranian composer practicing generative and electroacoustic music. His compositions are inflected with a host of digital synthesis processes and are informed by aspects of acousmatic theory, particularly spectromorphology. His works do not impose any temporal scheme upon the listener, rejecting the semiotic operation of 'engagement/disengagement' in the discourse of A.J. Greimas. 'Pithy & Prolix,' his new piece for the Entr'acte label, features sound scenes that emphasize the materiality and morphology of spatial textures. In it, Shafii presents an asymmetrical narrative that articulates tension, amorphous forms, and complex sonorities, signifying a plurality of meaning and complication.
Shafii has performed at concerts, festivals, installations, and workshops in the US and Canada. He runs the Ge-stell label and is currently based in Seattle, Washington.
