javier alvarez

Fulcrum Point has united with Morelia, Mexico to bring the fusion of new music and technological innovation to Chicago. ¡Revolución! is an interactive music experience, premiering the groundbreaking work of renowned composer Javier Álvarez for an inspired culminating performance. Álvarez’s premiere will be complimented by the work of fellow Latin American composers, including Rodrigo Sigal, Orlando Garcia, and Gabriela Ortiz.


Participating in the creation of new music has never been more revolutionary! 


Music Meets Tech

We partnered with our friend, composer and sound designer Joel Corelitz and his smartphone app, Shortwave. This music technology allows creative interaction between performer and audience members in real time, allowing for a collaborative concert experience. Get excited: audience members will have the opportunity to utilize Shortwave and participate throughout the final performance simply by pulling out their phones and getting creative. 


Additionally, as part of this program Fulcrum Point empowered Chicago teens from Latina Girls Code to create music on a digital composing platform. The winning composition influenced Álvarez’s final composition. 


Collaboration with CMMAS

This concert is the culminating event of a 2017-18 collaboration with the Mexican Centre for Music and the Sonic Arts (CMMAS) in Morelia, Mexico and was made possible by The MacArthur International Connections Fund. Learn more.
