we support today's musician.

behind the name

borrowed from music notation, fp is an abbreviation for fortepiano which instructs the performer to play loudly and then immediately softly. what this does, in some form or another, is add excitement to the music. 

video installation

fp Creative brings that excitement to our programming for both artists and audience.
