"To the powerful, to anyone who hides behind a brand, be warned: We know what fonts you use. We've read your brand guidelines.

A series of free workshops designed to help musicians and technologists collaborate are being offered by CU Boulder’s ATLAS Institute. Held weekly throughout the spring semester, the Music Technology Workshop Series connects those interested in music technology with faculty and students from ATLAS, CMCI and the College of Music as well as with others with specialized skills in music technology. Due to the circumstances of COVID-19, this series has been postponed. We hope to continue offering these and similar opportunities in the fall semester.
