Rachel Devorah Trapp
Rachel Devorah Trapp is an American composer, sound artist, and improvising hornist. Her context-specific works for performance and installation crystallize in sound the habits of being: the daily patterns of ineffable exchange that bind our individual lives together.
Pieces by Trapp have been performed by artists such as orkest de ereprijs, loadbang, Meehan/ Perkins Duo, Fred Frith, and the Del Sol String Quartet and have been heard at places such as Opera America, the OPENSIGNAL Festival at Brown University, and the International SuperCollider Symposium. Her projects have been supported by grants and residencies from New Music USA, Studio for Electro-Instrumental Music (STEIM)[NL], and Kulturrådet (Arts Council)[NO].
She earned a Master’s degree in composition from Mills College, California in 2013 and a Bachelor’s degree in horn performance from the City University of New York in 2007. She is currently a Jefferson Fellow at the University of Virginia pursuing a Doctoral degree in composition and computer technologies.
Currently based: US
