The Tune In Festival
The Tune In Festival
ENDED

About

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.

About

Southland Ensemble presents a concert highlighting three generations of living British composers - Howard Skempton (1947), Laurence Crane (1961) and Sarah Hughes (1983). 

 

All three composers have had a considerable impact on experimental music both nationally and globally.  Skempton was a founding member of the infamous Scratch Orchestra.  Crane, whose compositions have been gaining recent notoriety, is closely associated with the experimental ensemble Apartment House, now celebrating their 20th year as an experimental ensemble.  Hughes, both an artist and composer, is the co-creator of the experimental collective Compost and Height.  

 

This concert will feature an arrangement of Hughes' A Reward is given for the Best Inframammary Fold composed for the ensemble. 

 

While all three composers maintain their own unique voices, there is a sparse beauty found in their music that unites them. We invite you to share to hear similarities and differences, and share this special listening experience with us. 

 

Admission: $18 | $15 students
