It's described as a ". . . contemporary multimedia chamber opera with acoustic, digital, and visual elements". CO2 - Cycle de Lieder is a collaboration between internationally recognized composers Patrick Defossez and Anne-Gabriel Debaecker and performed by French Duo Autres Voix de Piano, French Ensemble Zellig and and Canadian new music diva Janice Isabel Jackson.
The performance explores the merging of flesh and data as sounds created by traditional instruments and the human voice meet digital media.
