Cloud Chamber Orchestra members:

Robby Aceto is an internationally recognized musician whose unconventional sonic approach and unending fascination with the electric guitar place him among the new breed of “color” guitarists. He has toured and recorded with artists like David Sylvian, the Heads, Tom Tom Club, Jansen/Barbieri/Karn, David Torn, Splattercell Italian ambient pop diva Alice Visconti, jazz singer Lizz Wright, and Cape Bretonsinger/songwriter Douglas September. His debut solo CD Code was released to unanimous critical praise at home and abroad. In 2001 he collaborated with composer/drummer Bobby Lurie to create the original score for Emily Hart’s environmental documentary, The God Squad. His original film score credits include Saved by Deportation: The Unknown Odyssey of Polish Jews, Walking the Line, The Closure Myth, Jolly Black Slaves, and Invisible Ink. He composed the theme music for NPR’s World@Work. He has also scored several short films for the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum of American Art, as well as the environmental multimedia walls linking the Lunder Conservation Center with the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.

Peter Dodge is a musician and composer. Dodge has performed in a variety of genres including classical, folk, rock, Afro-Caribbean, and experimental jazz. He has collaborated with choreographers, poets, storytellers, painters, sculptors, ritual artists, and filmmakers. He is a multi-instrumentalist and a collector. He is also part of the Hospicare music program.

Chris White has been exploring new directions for the cello since the late 1970's. His performance work spans playing in an intimate duo with piano or guitar, with a jazz string quartet, or with his jazz group the Cayuga Jazz Ensemble. He has performed in Europe, Canada, and the United States.  He has published articles on the history of jazz cello in Strings and Down Beat. Chris performed with his jazz quartet at The First World Cello Congress (June 1988) and The Quinzaine de Montreal (April 1992). He also performs regularly as a classical player with The Binghamton (NY) Symphony and with chamber and jazz groups. An active private cello teacher, Chris is  on the faculty of The Community School of Music & Arts in Ithaca. He also gives workshops on improvisation for cellists. He founded and directs the New Directions Cello Association & Festival (now at Ithaca College), which organizes an annual festival dedicated to nonclassical cello and includes Artistic Advisors David Baker, Ron Carter, David Darling, Yo-Yo Ma, and Julian Lloyd Weber.

Funding for this performance is generously provided by the Office of the Dean in the Roy H. Park School of Communications and the Ithaca College First Year Seminar Program at  Ithaca College, with additional support from the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival
