The Tune In Festival
11/6/21, 2:00 AM
The return of The Tune In Festival will feature more than 30 artists and ensembles over four days, coming together to pay respect to the time-honored tradition of music and poetry as sources of resilience, protest and inspiration. Curated by performance poet J. Ivy and pianist Lisa Kaplan in close collaboration with CAP UCLA Creative Advisor Kristy Edmunds.
For the festival, Jennifer created a music flm for experimental violin duo The Furies. Confronting humanity's impact on the climate and our place in the universe, The Furies's piece for the Tune In Festival is a meditation on the arc of history, from the primal dawn of civilization to an uncertain future.
Day 2: Friday, November 5 at 7PM PT
Eighth Blackbird: Singing in the Dead of Night by Julia Wolfe
The Furies: Did He Promise You Tomorrow

4th Annual Harvard Music Festival: Jennifer Bewerse discusses Concert Design
Time & Location
The third of four evenings of special hour-long presentations featuring acclaimed guests sharing their innovative work and wonderful insights. Each event concludes with time for Q&A.
As a composer, Jennifer Bewerse sees herself as a collagist where her work is to collect and arrange the elements of each piece. Her compositions are built from sounds she wants to hear using simple mechanics that yield complex results. Each collage generates moods, the sensation of meaning, and, most importantly, makes space for listeners to draw new connections in their perspectives and experiences.
Performers and audiences are listening to and thinking about music in new ways. In this presentation/discussion, Jennifer will describe her path to claiming the title of Artist, exploring and expressing big ideas as a performer, and reframing the concert as its own medium.
Jennifer’s works have been performed at Craft in America: Sunday Sound Streams, Nadia Sirota’s Living Music: Pirate Radio Edition, and the Music from Salem Cello Seminar. Recently she was commissioned by Aperture Duo to write a new work for livestreaming musicians.
In 2020, Jennifer began a series of Postal Pieces inspired by James Tenney’s 1970’s postal compositions. The ongoing project currently includes 16 pieces written for and inspired by members of Jennifer’s performing community.
