Jennifer Bellor: Crystalline

by Olga Shupyatskaya, Futaba Niekawa, Hannah Weaver & Kyle Peters

Crystalline is inspired by how moments in life can lead us to finding clarity, becoming in a way, crystalline, like the the fusion of natural elements resulting in the creation of these beautiful crystal-like structures found in nature.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Crystalline is inspired by how moments in life can lead us to finding clarity, becoming in a way, crystalline, like the the fusion of natural elements resulting in the creation of these beautiful crystal-like patterns/structures found in nature. Throughout the piece, the interplay among the instruments evokes images of these elements coming together and breaking a part as the structure is formed, creating a sparkly, crystal-like atmosphere.

Crystalline was commissioned by pianist Olga Shupyatskaya and Futaba Niekawa for premiere at the Eastman School of Music July 2, 2017 in Kilbourn Hall on Shupyatskaya’s summer faculty recital. It was selected to be featured on the Music Now Winner Concert at the 52nd annual Contemporary Music Festival held at Indiana State University October 26, 2018.

Jennifer Bellor is a versatile composer whose works have been presented by Washington National Opera at the Kennedy Center, American Composers Orchestra, Seattle Women’s Jazz Orchestra (SWOJO), DCINY Series at Carnegie Hall, Clocks in Motion, Wuhan Philharmonic Chamber Series, Las Vegas Philharmonic, Lviv Philharmonic, UNLV Wind Orchestra, ShoutHouse, Florida State University Festival of New Music, Missouri State University Composition Festival, Indiana State University Contemporary Music Festival, Eastman New Jazz Ensemble, Eastman Saxophone Project, UNLV Jazz Ensemble, ensemble A/Tonal, South Sound Saxophone Ensemble, Ritsos Project, Kansas Virtuosi, Mivos Quartet, Hildegard Festival, Elevate Ensemble, Hocket, Society for Composers National Conference, and many others in the US and abroad.

Bellor’s music draws on a variety of influences, evidenced in her self-released debut album Stay (2016), which is a melting pot of different music styles largely based on poetry. Stay was featured on NewMusicBox’s 2016 Staff picks, and was praised as having the ability to “maintain a highly individual identity without needing to take refuge in pre-post-genre musical silos.” Bellor also has received awards for her jazz/cross genre compositions Midnight Swim (2013 DownBeat), Noir (2014 SWOJO), and Chase the Stars (2016 The American Prize).

Current projects include a new percussion quartet for Clocks in Motion, a new work for soprano and electric guitar for electric guitarist DJ Sparr and soprano Kristin Bachrach, and a new work for Transient Canvas. Additionally, her second album titled “Reflections at Dusk” is released by Innova Records November 15th.

Currently, she is the Composer-in-Residence for the percussion quartet, Clocks in Motion, and is working on four quartets that will be completed over the three-year residency. Additionally, current projects include her second album, and various commissions for both professional and collegiate ensembles.

Born and raised in Northern NY, Bellor earned a PhD in music composition at Eastman School of Music, a Master of Music degree in composition at Syracuse University, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in music at Cornell University. Her primary composition teachers included David Liptak, Bob Morris, Andrew Waggoner, Sally Lamb-McCune, and Steven Stucky. She is on the music composition faculty at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and artistic director of the new music series Nextet. Please visit her website www.jenniferbellor.com.
