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

WISC: Fellows-in-Residence Concert and Conversation
Time & Location
Rachel Beetz and Jennifer Bewerse are Autoduplicity, an exploration of music for bodies and speech, our shared instruments. Their concerts investigate how these ordinary sounds can be transformed into powerful musical ideas reflective of the human experience. They began the Autoduplicity project to explore what would happen when the performer was separated from traditional instruments. From this separation, fundamental relationships between the performer, audience, body, and voice are revealed.
At the Women's International Study Center (WISC) residency this September, New Zealand composer Celeste Oram joins Autoduplicity. Over the course of their residency, they have collaborated on a new musical work for the duo exploring themes of multiplicity, identity of bodies with regard to musical instruments, sounds of centuries past, and alter egos. This new work will serve as the center of a full length concert reflecting on identity alongside pieces by Beetz, Bewerse, Bengt af Klintberg, and Taka Iimura.
Rachel, Jennifer, and Celeste will present their work at the Acequia Madre House Tuesday September 27, 2016 at 5:30pm.
