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

"'the cage, on this occasion, was made to recall the human form.' [from john the posthumous by jason schwartz]
animals have become a central theme in the music that i write: animals that are misshapen, dismembered, sutured together. these are animals of human creation and degeneration that are without kin; they are learning to walk, learning to speak.
here is a grotesque of five pieces — abscess, abbess, monk, monkfish, lungfish — that possess through-lines to one another, but never to all at once. they are blunt amalgams of rapid experimentation with little consciousness of their materiality beyond the mutative remnants of each species. their creation, like their titles, is an extended exquisite corpse game: an always-forward lumbering onward to the next, and connected only by the loosest implications of what came before."
