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

Description:Synchromy and the Audubon Center at Debs Park present Urban Birds, an online experience showcasing many of the incredible birds and composers of Southern California. Synchromy commissioned pieces from Southern California-based composers inspired by common local birds. Site visitors can find premiere performance videos through an interactive map of LA's Debs Park, including my premiere of Call and Echo by Brandon Rolle.
Cassia Streb and I developed the Concert Design for Urban Birds. I'm particularly excited about the QR scavenger hunt we created! Print out the scavenger hunt and field guide, then use your smart phone or tablet to have your own musical bird hunt at home. All of the materials are available at synchromy.org/urban-birds - just click over and head to the Outpost.
