This year Fulcrum Point launches a collaboration with the Mexican Centre for Music and the Sonic Arts (CMASS) in Morelia Mexico and Chicago’s Latino and tech communities, including Latina Girls Code. The culmination of this partnership will be a 2018 world premiere composition blending music, technology and audience interaction, created by one of the best-known Mexican composers of our generation, Javier Álvarez. Learn more about Álvarez and the project on our International Connections page. 


This October, leading up to this climactic event, Fulcrum Point will organize local musicians and coders for a two day Tech Music Jam event at 1871 in the Merchandise Mart. Participants will help develop the interactive music technology needed for the 2018 concert. For this event, Fulcrum Point will partner with Chicago based composer and coder, Joel Corelitz and his interactive music app, Shortwave. Watch a demo.
