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

Music for Your Inbox: Southland Ensemble plays William Roper
Time & Location
How much of a nudge does a performer need in order to launch a musical idea? What is too little information or too much? In an effort to play with this idea, William Roper composed Pigs, Pigs, Oh! Those Tasty Pigs, a deck of cards with symbols from everyday life that act as improvisational prompts. In this video, Southland Ensemble interprets these cards by recording their sounds and actions in an otherwise empty space. The final result is a surprise to everyone—the correlations and coincidences that arise feel like magic. This month’s art print postcard, Iowan Idyll, is also by Bill, a skilled multi-disciplinary artist. The performance and postcard combine to give a more complete perspective of his artistic point of view.
