from ARCHITECTURE to SOUND SCULPTURE 'My compositions are based on patterns, instant music, textures, nature

and poetry. I like to see my music as sound-sculptures (three-dimensional), a scenery where one can walk around the notes as it were, with room to embrace the natural sound, movement, light, morphology, texture and poetry of the actual landscape or architecture, inevitable reality is altered by the subtle harp whispers. Stillness is fundamental to make music tangible.' AV Anne Vanschothorst is one of the view composers in the world who produces applied music with the harp as basis material and a pioneer in the field of original minimal harp music. She advocates that harp-based-audio-productions should be heard more often in film, multi-media and art-projects. Because the pure sound of this string-instrument has the unique quality to blend natural with spoken word, visuals and nature/ambient-sounds, even more so than the traditional orchestral music. Her recent work is placed e.g. in the cinema-movie and national television documentary “Levende Rivier / Living River” by film maker Ruben Smit, Discovery Communications (Animal Planet, Discovery Channel, TLC ao) and a GUCCI infomercial.
