Carbon Dioxide Ensemble Halloween 2023 Concert Replay with Theremin, Synths, Copper Heart & Dry Ice

CO2E Halloween 2023 BH

This is a live recording of a piece called “Interdimensional Breach” from a set we performed as the Carbon Dioxide Ensemble at the Rocky Mountain Synthesizer Meet’s 2023 Halloween Synth Concert at the Junkyard Social Club in Boulder. It was improvised and recorded in one take in front of a live audience.

Members of the Carbon Dioxide Ensemble include Thomas Lundy on Copper Heart articulated with dry ice (with pickup mic for live sampling), Victoria Lundy on Theremin and Live Electronics, and Mark Mosher on Synths, Live Sampling, and Heart FX performed on iPad Pro 11" M1 with a Scarlet 4I4 interface. Our performances are informed and inspired in equal parts by Pierre Schaeffer and Musique Concrète, and the Krell Electronic Tonalities of Bebe and Louis Barron.

L'automne est un deuxième printemps où chaque feuille est une fleur.
Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower.

― Albert Camus

Three artists conjure the vibrant colors, mellow refracted light, and entrancing blue skies of Autumn in a venue dedicated to sound, sight, and vision. Autumn Light is the first appearance at Lumonics by Victoria Lundy, Mark Mosher, and monoscene. Please join us for a sonic journey of light and sound.

monoscene is an experimental electronic music project by Christoph Scholtes. monoscene employs multiple artistic concepts and sound sources, including modular synthesis, tape loops, acoustic elements, vocals, and field recordings to push creative boundaries of the electronic music genre. Born and raised in Germany, Christoph lives in Colorado and actively participates in the local Colorado music community. His family and the mountains inspire him.

Mark Mosher plays, composes, and improvises original music from experimental cinematic soundscapes to techno using hardware and software synthesizers, samplers, and effects. For Autumn Light, Mark will perform with Percussa AudioCubes and Tenori-On. Mark is acknowledged as a leading practitioner of the Percussa AudioCubes, having developed 9 Box Method and Templates for them.

Victoria Lundy is a noted thereminist who has played in the Denver experimental/underground scene since the 90s. In addition, she performs classic musique concrète, often in collaboration with Mark Mosher and Thomas Lundy in the Carbon Dioxide Ensemble. Currently, she's concentrating on solo ambient work exploring the expressive qualities of the theremin.

Lumonics Light & Sound Gallery is an immersive light sculpture gallery featuring the work of light artists Dorothy and Mel Tanner. Lumonics is an artform that combines light, music, and sculptures to create immersive experiences and is a perfect venue for electronic music.
