The tribal music of our time

South American duo Lulacruza explore the intersection of folk music and electronica

By Caitlin Rockett
Anthropologists debate the exact reason why humans created music — Darwin believed music was produced as sexual enticement; others say it was a way to strengthen the bonds of a community. But the origin of music feels inconsequential when we find ourselves in its inimitable embrace — when we turn on the radio and a song sends us into a momentary temporal flux; when we feel inexplicably linked to the stranger next to us at a concert; when a rhythm moves us seemingly against our will.

The Springford murders

Journalist/author needs your help to fill in the blanks in the final years of a troubled young man’s life

By Caitlin Rockett
Boulder’s first of three “rightsizing” pilot projects has rubbed many Boulder residents the wrong way — so wrong, in fact, that on July 28, City Council decided not to move forward with the next two pilot projects as soon as initially planned.

Many citizens claim City Council didn’t have adequate data to proceed with the project, which critics say has turned the corridor into a parking lot.

Something old, something new

Steve Hackman kicks off CMF's third summer Mash-Up Series

By Caitlin Rockett
If there’s one thing composer Steven Hackman wants you to know about his growing collection of “mash-up” compositions — where he joins celebrated master works from classical artists like Brahms seamlessly with works from contemporary pop culture gods like Radiohead — it’s that this is no gimmick.
