Pendulum New Music series now called CU Boulder SoundWorks

Labels aren’t a priority for the creative directors behind the College of Music’s popular Pendulum New Music series.

The live performance/forum for new works, which will officially change its name from Pendulum to CU Boulder SoundWorks in January 2023, doesn’t place the same emphasis on formal categorization that obsesses many music fans and scholars alike. According to Egemen Kesikli, Pendulum/SoundWorks’ newly appointed artistic director, the focus of the concert series is more about inclusion, exploration and innovation than it is about classification.
