Biography

Rachel Devorah Trapp is a composer, sound artist, and improvising hornist whose 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 RDT have been performed by artists such as Rhymes with Opera, Fred Frith, Laurel Jay Carpenter, and the Del Sol String Quartet and have been heard at places such as the National Opera Center (NY), the OPENSIGNAL Festival at Brown University (RI), Røst AIR (Norway), the Musical Singularity Series at Wesleyan University (CT), the International SuperCollider Symposium at the University of Colorado at Boulder (CO), the Music for People and Thingamajigs Festival (CA), and Art in Odd Places (NC). Her writings have been published in Emergency Index, -empyre-, and raiding the larder: a journal at the junction of art and food.

She earned a Master's degree in composition from Mills College in 2013 and a Bachelor's degree in horn performance from the City University of New York in 2007 studying with David Jolley. She is currently in her first year pursuing a Doctoral degree in composition and computer technologies at the University of Virginia where she is a Jefferson Scholar Fellow.
