Answer-

Carbon shows different oxidation state according to the compound formula. 

here we can clearly say that Carbon is in its +3 oxidation state.

\\(CN)_{2}(+3)\rightarrow CN^{-}(+2)\\ (CN)_{2}(+3)\rightarrow CNO^{-}(+4)

The oxidation state of carbon is increased(oxidized) and decreased(reduced) as well in the product side. So it is a redox reaction and more specifically we can say it disproportion redox reaction.
