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

Time & Location
In a society where music often exists simultaneously as a document – for example a score or recording – and as a potential live performance, the performing artist is confronted with a question: what are the unique offerings of live performance? Tonight’s concert offers five pieces and their diverse answers to this question.
Moving from the physical manifestation of sound to the emotional motivation behind it, the full realization of these works is only available in the moments they are exchanged between the performer and audience. A case for live performance is made not with the risk for failure or presentation of the performer as hero, but with compositional ideas that live fully only within the moment of performance.
