The Carbon Dioxide Ensemble 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.

The Copper Heart was built and played by William Valdez. The Orchestra had a changing membership that at various times included David Dickson, Leroy Jaramillo, Victoria Lundy, Eduardo Mendez, Jason Mieger, and Bruce Nickerson.
