About: 

Fulcrum Point New Music Project pushes the boundaries of the musical experience globally by supporting new compositions, creating and performing transformative new music programs, and educating audiences of all ages and backgrounds to imagine the possibilities of music. Founded by trumpeter Stephen Burns in 1998, Fulcrum Point creates dynamic new programming with an emphasis on cross-cultural exchanges, diverse voices, improvisation, technology, and collaboration, embracing a broad range of experimental styles and multimedia content. Fulcrum Point empowers artists and communities to create new art music that enriches people’s lives and brings about a more empathic world.

The Freedom Songs is a multi-media ode to freedom, composed 75 years after the liberation from fascism in Europe, commissioned by Fulcrum Point New Music Project. Franklin D. Roosevelt's Four Freedoms speech along with poems and quotes from politicians, writers, poets, and philosophers like the Buddha, Malcolm X, Hegel, Yeats, and Martin Luther King, inspired The Freedom Songs.

Fulcrum Point presents the American Premiere of Dutch avant-pop composer JacobTV's The Freedom Songs, a multi-media ode to freedom inspired by the words of The Buddha, Fannie Lou Hamer, MLK, Malcom X, Hegel and others. Composed 75 years after Europe’s liberation from fascism, the oratorio takes FDR’s Four Freedoms speech and expands them in a 75’ electroacoustic tone bath with video.
