In 1971, Margaret Leng Tan was the first woman to earn a Doctorate from the Juilliard School. Since then, her five-decade career has positioned the musician as a figurehead of avant-garde music, owing in part to her unique incorporation of the toy piano in her performances. A close associate of the late John Cage, we meet Leng Tan at the age of 71 as she embarks on an iconic collaboration with George Crumb, one of the last remaining avant-garde composers of his era. "Twinkle Dammit!" gives access to the rarely-seen creative process between two musical geniuses, and peels back the public layers of the worlds greatest toy piano virtuoso to explore the private obsessions that have lead to a life committed to art.
