Musician Rachel Claudio on building electronic performances and the transcending power of sound

May 13, 2017

Welcome to episode #44! Our guest is a European-based, Australian-born artist, composer, singer and producer. She uses electronic instruments and technology to create and perform masterpieces in real time, and has performed all over the world. She recently delivered a moving TEDx talk titled ‘how to translate the feeling into sound’ and is also a freelance lecturer in Creativity at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts.


Some of the topics we spoke about include:

  • The various experiences of the composer versus the listener
  • The best tools she recommends for those wanting to experiment with electronic instruments
  • Her cover of Outkast’s 'Hey Ya' thats surpassed well over 2.5 million views
  • The time she took the plunge at 24 years old to live in Europe and the journey that followed dedicating everything to her art
  • And the process of simultaneously performing while envisioning the composition ahead of time.

I present to you, the stunning, soulful and exceptionally talented ... Rachel Claudio!
