Our Interview with Composer Ronit Kirchman

On how she gets started on a piece:

“Well, it really depends on the medium. For a piece that is integrated with narrative, like a film or television score, or even a song for film, the world of the story is the way in for me. I read the script, watch footage, get to know the creative storytellers and their vision, and I start to inhabit that world and discover the potentials for music to speak, shape, and move within it. It’s great to have a little time to ramp into a project like that, because as I become more immersed in it, I start to come up with melodies, harmonies, and gestural ideas, or a glimpse of an imaginary soundscape, at random points in my day. I take voice memos of musical ideas and conceptual insights.”
