The Tune In Festival
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.

San Diego New Music: A California Score

Time & Location

Oct 21, 2016, 7:30 PM

Athenaeum Music & Arts Library, 1008 Wall St, La Jolla, CA 92037, USA


San Diegans know drought—the persistent low rainfall of life near the desert and the recent drought to strike the western United States. And they also know to look to the skies for the deluge that will—that must—come. San Diego New Music's theme this year is "drought and deluge." Curators of each of the concerts this season will craft a musical vision of drought and deluge. 


For this concert, flutist Rachel Beetz (joined by Kyle Blair, Jennifer Bewerse, and Dustin Donahue) presents an exploration the sounds of the dryness in San Diego while also remembering water. Along with sands, grains, and fire of drought in works by Natacha Diels, Kaija Saariaho, and a world premiere by Michael Pisaro, water, shells, and drops in works by John Cage and Peter Ablinger transform our instruments into the Californian landscape, ending in their absence in a presentation of Peter Ablinger's California Score, for 24 sheets of paper and objects.
