Shannon Sea is a Bahamian-American composer, sound artist, and sonic activist. Her compositions are deeply influenced by the avant-garde aesthetic, electronic music, Taoism, and her Afro-Caribbean roots. Sea's works explore themes of nature, spirituality, Afro-futurism, and self-exploration. She seeks to create sound worlds that fuse together acoustic and electronic means of expression.
Sea views listening as a form of activism and meditation. She believes that sound can heal and expand one's consciousness. Sea regularly hosts sound healing and sound meditation sessions, in which she performs an experimental live-set using synthesizers, field recordings, improv, sound design, and the language of classical music.
Largely self-taught, Sea began studying music theory and composition in 2017, after a career in law. She launched her music career in 2019, and has composed for theater and dance. Shannon is currently working on her debut EP which she plans to release in 2022. Sea's influences are Harold Budd, Alice Coltrane, Keith Jarrett, Eliane Radigue, Nina Simone, and Toru Takemitsu.
