"Clockworks" is a program of music inspired by industrial processes and humans' relationship with technology.

The program takes its name from two very different pieces with the title "Clockworks." The first is an acoustic reimagining of a 1970s electronic work written by computer music innovator Laurie Spiegel. The second is Hinge’s innovative arrangement of a song by extreme-metal band Meshuggah, a band known for its complex polyrhythmic structures that attempt to literally embody industrial machinery.

The rest of the program features recently composed music portraying evocative images of humans interfacing with technology. The oldest work on the program, Louis Andriessen’s "Hout," literally turns the ensemble into a relentless machine with an endless stream of pounding rhythms performed in a close imitative canon. Chaya Czernowin’s "Sahaf" imagines the ensemble transforming into a completely different type of machine, embodying a sort of “meat grinder” in which bits of musical materials are spat out in a playful and colorful fashion.

Jessie Cox’s "Black as a Hack for Cyborgification" takes an Afro-futurist perspective, finding parallels between the integration of technology and humans with that of the Black diaspora within a Euro/American context. The only piece on this program to use electronics is Katherine Young’s "Camilles," a subtle and evocative work drawing inspiration from the work of multi-species feminist Donna Haraway, which attempts to sonify an imagined future in which humans and butterflies have been combined to create a hybrid creature with a hyper-sensitive sense of hearing.
