Video: Carbon Dioxide Ensemble (CO2E) Live at Denver Noise Fest 2016

The Carbon Dioxide Ensemble (CO2E) had the honor of opening night 2 of the Denver Noise Fest 2016 on December 22nd, 2016 at Globe Hall. Here is a video of our performance.

As I mentioned in a recent post, the focus of our 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…). I then use the Elektron Octatrack dynamic performance sampler to live-sample the Tom’s performance via a contact mic on the copper heart. I 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.

dnf2016logoThe Denver Noise Fest VII 2016 is On!!! This is despite crackdown against DIY spaces in Denver after the Oakland tragedy.

The Denver Noise Fest is an experimental music festival hosting a number of artists from across the World to play and perform in the city of Denver, Colorado. It’s an extreme weekend of noise!

The event will proceed but will be moving from Rhinoceropolis to Globe Hall, 4483 Logan St. Denver CO.  A huge thanks  John Gross for all he does in the community and for this event. Also thanks to Randall Frazier and Globe Hall (also the home for the Rocky Mountain Synthesizer Meetup) for stepping up to provide  home for this year’s event and supporting the local DIY community in its time of need.

I’ll be there covering the event as well as performing a set as a member of the The Carbon Dioxide Ensemble (Co2E) so stay tuned for some photos and video.
