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.

Jennifer Bewerse is joined by Southland Ensemble to present her final recital at UC San Diego featuring the chance poetry of Jackson Mac Low. Mac Low’s dedication to systems of composition – which included chance, indeterminacy, and simultaneous performance – allowed him to create works of extreme openness. His poems represent a moment in poetry where truths of authorship were called into question and the very boundaries of music and poetry were pulled taut.


“I myself think that if it is a connection and it does something, it’s some kind of cause but it’s different from the time-linear cause going from past to future. It’s across any present, between any two things coexisting. ... And I think that one thing that systematic chance does allow... is for something to happen on that synchronous plane.” - Jackson Mac Low
