The Canadian composer Jean Chatillon has dedicated to her a composition for harp solo. Van Schothorst composed her first music piece, Still life at age 15. The composition is originally written for harp and flute and later arranged for harp solo.
Van Schothorst is producing CDs and DVDs for her indy label Harp and Soul Productions. She is also responsible for the compositions and film recordings of these productions. She has been assigned also for composition projects.
Several compositions could be heard on (inter)national radio stations and podcasts. Radio Indy has honored Van Schothorst with the Gold Artist award for the CD I am a dreamer.
She participates with poets, musicians and composers. With the Swedish composer Goran Jonasson, the English singer Sharon Selman, the American flutist Cathy Feldman and Swedish pianist Morgan Martinsson she is creating the CD Pink Anacondas. They work and participate together via internet/ myspace.
The compositions of the CD Aarden (2007) can be characterised as meditative and even mystical and are being compared with a mantra. The music is acoustical and instrumental.
The addition of soundscapes and spoken poetry to her recordings are a part of her work method too.
Van Schothorst adds also film as an addition to her compositions. The artistic images are photografical taken or post processed with filters.
