Cameron Shafii's Corpora Vilia consolidates the many strands of the composer's practice into three long-form tracks. Toying with the ear and skirting an uncanny valley of timbre, the pieces propose a new paradigm for structuring musical material through the acoustic properties of sound. From stalactitic passages of hair-raising synthesis to through-composed acousmatic sequences, listeners are invited to feel the presence of hundreds of tiny fragments of audio that have been cut, spliced, and processed to give the impression of a virtual orchestra.
