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

Time & Location
Last April, composer Jennifer Bewerse mailed feminist violin duo, The Furies, a piece written on a repurposed wedding thank you card. In it, she asks them to tell stories of “a blossom, blooming, or the color red” while beating their chests. For this month’s performance video, The Furies premiere Jennifer’s Bloom between two arrangements of songs from Brazilian composer Jocy de Oliveira’s subversive first album “A Música Século XX de Jocy” (Jocy’s Twentieth Century Music). A pioneer storyteller, Oliveira’s avant-garde Bossa Nova transforms the Brazilian muse—beautiful, young, and rich—into a full person by humanizing by her mortality. To deepen the storytelling, MFYI commissioned an art print postcard from Yasmine Nasser Diaz, a multidisciplinary artist whose practice navigates overlapping tensions around religion, gender, and third-culture identity.
