The Tune In Festival
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.

Time & Location

Automata Theater, 504 Chung King Ct, Los Angeles, CA 90012, USA


Last Chrysanthemums features the premiere of Trois quatuors Mikio Naruse by Canadian experimental music composer, André Cormier, performed by Koan Quartet with video design by Joshua Westerman. The three string quartets of Trois quatuors Mikio Naruse were written in 2014 as an extension of notation ideas that appear in some of Cormier's earlier pieces. Each quartet focuses entirely on just one of these ideas, however, they are united by a reliance on performer intervention and choice-making, varying boundaries of autonomy within the score’s structure, and issues of interdependency between quartet members. The titles of the pieces take inspiration from 3 films by the late Japanese filmmaker, Mikio Naruse.
