Interested in expanding established meanings of musical production and experience, Triana has appropriated technological developments and elements from different artistic, scientific and philosophical disciplines. This is reflected in a hybrid oeuvre that ranges from concert music to vibrational objects.
Alba’s awards include Civitella Foundation Fellowship (U.S.); IDCT National Composition Contest, National Electroacoustic Music Contest, “Otto de Greiff” National Contest, French Alliance Award (Colombia). She’s also received residencies, grants and honorific mentions from renowned institutions.
