About the CO2 Ensemble

CO2 Ensemble, a collaboration with Thomas Lundy, Victoria Lundy, and Mark Mosher, is an improvisational musique concrète ensemble performing with copper heart and dry ice, theremin, and live sampling with interactive visuals. In this unique music and multimedia act, Mark uses the Elektron Octatrack dynamic performance sampler and other electronics to live-sample Thomas Lundy as he manipulates a Copper Heart with dry ice and other objects. Victoria Lundy accompanies on theremin and live electronics. The only audio source for Octatrack besides drum samples is the input from the contact mic on the Copper Heart. Mark also provides interactive visuals with live camera input to enhance the experience.

Since 2014, CO2 Ensemble has performed multimedia concerts in and around Denver. We played the long-running Concréte Mixer concert series at the Walnut Room, were the opening act for day 2 of the Denver International Noise Fest, collaborated using graphical scores with the filmmaker Taylor Dunne, and were invited to play a music convocation for the Lamont School of Music at the University of Denver performing on stage at the Gates Concert Hall.

CO2E descends from Denver’s Carbon Dioxide Orchestra, a group that performed in the 1990s and early 2000s. An earlier incarnation of the CO2 Orchestra performed in the 1980s.

About Scream Screen
Scream Screen - an ongoing series of films hosted and curated by Theresa Mercado - presents a terrifying trip to Mexico to spotlight two of Mexican gore-master Rubén Galindo Jr.’s most remarkable entries to the horror canon: CEMETERY OF TERROR and DON’T PANIC!

Cemetery Of Terror: The directing debut of Rubén Galindo Jr. (DON’T PANIC, GRAVE ROBBERS), CEMETERY OF TERROR is easily the wildest zombie movie to ever emerge from Mexico! On Halloween night, a group of bored teenagers steal a corpse from the morgue and take it to a nearby cemetery. Once there, they perform a Satanic ritual in an attempt to bring it back to life. Unfortunately, the kids chose the body of a savage serial killer who had just been shot dead by police. Whoops! The group of fun-seeking youngsters unwittingly revive the undead sadist, and only occult expert Dr. Carden (legendary Mexican character actor Hugo Stiglitz) can end the madness! Filled with gratuitous gore effects that would feel right at home in a Fulci film, CEMETERY is non-stop thrills and bloodshed from beginning to end.

Don’t Panic: A bonkers tribute to A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET from Mexican horror king Rubén Galindo Jr. (CEMETERY OF TERROR, GRAVE ROBBERS), DON’T PANIC is a surreal and action-packed rager that’s guaranteed to leave audiences awestruck and dumbfounded. It’s Michael’s (Jon Michael Bischof, who also performs the film’s memorable theme song) seventeenth birthday. His friends have decided to surprise him with the ultimate gift: breaking into his house and playing with a Ouija board! But this harmless fun quickly transforms into a supernatural terror, as newly-summoned demon Virgil possesses and murders Michael’s friends! Defying reality at every turn, DON’T PANIC is an awe-inspiring 1980s horror classic, now newly restored from the original 35mm camera negative.

Syn Sunday Set Recording from April 2017

A recording of my set from SYNTHESIZER SUNDAY (SYN-SUNDAY): A UNION OF ARCHITECTURE AND SOUND was captured by Kuxaan Sum who played at that event. 
Sunday, 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM
April 2017
at Denver Performing Arts Complex Galleria, 14th & Curtis
Like architecture, which starts from basic elements: glass, sand, and stone to create a building, synthesizers start from basic sine waves modulated to produce sound into music. Join us for this open-air concert at one of Denver’s most prominent cultural facilities where five musicians taking turns playing synthesizers will dedicate their performances to the distinctive glass roof of the Galleria.

There's also a recording of the jam that all the musicians did at the end of the show.

Perspectives by Kristin Aslan
What Do You See?
Do You See What I See?
 
Have you ever looked at something and found it to be wonderful, while the person you are with finds it strange? Maybe it’s an image or idea, maybe it’s a pug. In this installation, I explore the idea that we all see the world filtered through our lived experiences and give a playful voice to the idea that maybe, just maybe, we aren’t as open-minded and objective as we think. I use a variety of media and found objects to create layers and textures that celebrate our complex realities in a way that offers simplicity and delight.
