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

About Dog Star Orchestra Dog Star Orchestra is an ensemble and a once-a-year festival of experimental music, started in 2005 by composer Michael Pisaro as a way of playing recent experimental music by young composers and classic pieces from the experimental tradition. Described as “messily exceptional” by the Los Angeles Times, Dog Star events happen throughout the Los Angeles area and often feature offbeat performances in out-of-the-way places, alongside more traditional concert settings. Dog Star Orchestra is one of the main presenters fostering and documenting the strong local experimental music scene, as well as presenting work that would otherwise not be heard in the U.S.
About Music at the Wende Now in its second season, Music at the Wende is a new music series in which esteemed musical organizations present free concerts at the Wende Museum, with musical programs inspired by the Wende collection and mission.
