improvisational trio cloud chamber orchestra in their 2013 performance at the new directions cello festival.
the 40 minute found-footage film montage used in their performance was realized for the event by cloud chamber founding member robby aceto.
the group used no sound reinforcement at the performance, instead relying on the natural acoustics of the recital hall, blending their amplified instruments with acoustic ones which used no amplification. they have since used this approach with performances at several other screenings including "cabinet of doctor caligari"
robby aceto; electric guitars, prepared guitar, atmospherics, and tape effects
