This is a live performance by the Carbon Dioxide Ensemble (CO2E) recorded at the Denver Noise Fest 2016 on December 22nd, 2016 at Globe Hall.
The Carbon Dioxide Ensemble is a Denver-based collaboration with Mark Mosher, Thomas Lundy, and Victoria Lundy. The focus of the ensemble is on live improvisational performance of musique concrète. Thomas Lundy uses blocks for dry ice to cause the copper heart to vibrate (through rapid cooling, strikes, drags…). Mark then uses the Elektron Octatrack dynamic performance sampler to live-sample the Tom's performance via a contact mic on the copper heart. Mark then simultaneously performs and does real-time sound design with the captured audio. Victoria Lundy accompanies on Theremin and Reaktor. Audio is from room via the Q4N video camera.
