Compositions by Rachel A. R. Shaw

Hollywood Melancholy

Composer: Rachel A. R. Shaw         

Sample of my creative process

This is what my creative process looks like.  I am composing on the fly. This was recorded live as I played with musical material I had been playing with. This is very rough material that will go into a composition.  I try not to judge my work as I create.  I sit back and listen later on and decide what makes the cut and then expand on it.  It needs much refinement but there are some interesting things going on.  And from this, I will build my piece. The soundscape is supposed to imitate the movement of water which will eventually turn into swells.
