Cholera Nocebo is a 50 minute electro-acoustic presentation, performed with software and sampling, autoharp, prepared piano and small electronic and acoustic objects and instruments. It is an immersive multi channel composition which allows for an elastic performance. It is performed with a projection of multiple time-lapse car journeys along the Long Island Expressway in NY which gives the illusion of hurtling into a void, culminating in footage that was shot in the blackout in Lower Manhattan which occurred in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, which devastated NYC. The film was shot and edited by gea with additional footage by Sebastian Mlynarski.
