The Tune In Festival

About

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.

About

Ever since its earliest days in the 1930s, Monday Evening Concerts has striven to find kindred musical spirits from diverse historical epochs.  In the third concert of our season, we pair the works of two composers: Michael Pisaro and Guillaume de Machaut. Pisaro, who lives in Los Angeles, is one of the foremost representatives of the Wandelweiser Group. Writing pieces that feature microtonal electric guitar, bowed percussion, field recordings, rustling pine cones and choir, Pisaro has garnered wide critical acclaim. His counterpart on this concert, Guillaume de Machaut, was one of the great poets and musicians of 14th Century France. While the surfaces of these respective composers' works differ greatly, by placing them side by side, we examine the deeper connections that exist between these sublime artists separated by seven centuries.
