Fractum

Ana Paola Santillan Alcocer - Alea Publishing
Publisher Desc.  ABOUT THE WORK: Fractum, a trio for flute, bass clarinet and piano, was written for the Het Trio by Mexican composer Ana Paola Santilln Alcocer. Fractum is the Latin word for fraction, meaning the separation and division into portions or separable units of a possible whole. The musical fractions of this miniature piece arise from intervallic codes but most importantly from two sets of Tetrachords. As the result of these sets, two main four-note melodies are constantly interacting in different levels of transposition, rhythms and order, interlaced and juxtaposed by the three instruments throughout the 4 sections of the piece. The first two sections are the introduction of these fractions or portions presented in a fragmented manner in contrast with the last two sections which have the support of quartal harmony and a more flowing, thematic and contrapuntal texture; this way, it becomes evident that these fractions are always wandering and are in fact the representation of the entire piece. ABOUT THE COMPOSER: Composer Ana Paola Santilln Alcocer is a native of Mexico City. She began her composition studies at the Centro de Investigacin y Estudios Musicales (CIEM) where she studied with Ma. Antonieta Lozano, Alejandro Velasco (Kavindu) and Gerardo Tamz. She holds a Licenciate in Music composition (LTCL) with distinction and the AMus TCL Diploma in Theory, Criticism and Literature from Trinity College London, having studied composition and piano with Vincent Carver. She received her Master of Music degree (magna cum laude) from The Shepherd School of Music (Rice University) having studied composition with Shih-Hui Chen and Arthur Gottschalk, and piano with Jeanne Kierman. She has spent several summers studying music composition at Brevard Music Center, the CASMI International Summer Program in Composition in Prague, Czech Republic, the ISAM International Summer Academy of Music in Michelstadt, Germany, and the Fontainebleau American Conservatory in France. She is the recipient of several awards and fellowships, including first prize at the interdisciplinary competition Spectacle des architectes et compositeurs 2008 (Fontainebleau, France), a Fulbright scholarship, the UNESCO-Aschberg Bursaries for Artists Programme, resident composer at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, winner of the Paul Cooper Prize in Composition 2008 (Rice University), 2nd prize in the Josef Dorfman Memorial International Composition Prize 2007 (Michelstadt, Germany), and three selected works at the Foro Internacional de Musica Nueva Manuel Enriquez festival, among others.
