Cameron Shafii is a San Francisco-based composer practicing generative and systems music. His compositions are inflected by software processes involving spectral analysis, convolution, recombination, file handling, and stochastic elements. His works do not impose upon the listener any temporal scheme – ‘engagement/disengagement’ in Greimassian terms – refusing to form what we call a narrative tension. But his music has kinetic movements and climaxes; a functional exploration of sounds that range from microscopic and minimal, to macro and maximal.
Cameron Shafii has remixed and reprocessed works by CoH, Dalglish and Sote. Currently, he is working in collaboration with Japan-based sound artists Kôzô Inada and Christophe Charles for a forthcoming 2xLP titled i . He runs the label Ge-stell.
