SOUND HEALING: ANCESTRAL PLANE 

Release: 2021

Sound Healing: Ancestral Plane is a compilation of sound healing sessions Shannon has performed since 2019.  The EP will feature Shannon's signature use of synthesizers, field recordings, improv, sound design, and the language of classical music.

SOUND ART

2020

Transfiguration Series (A Current Work In Development) is a 6-part interdisciplinary series themed around re-imagining reality and decolonizing the imagination.  Shannon is currently developing Part One of that series.  The series will feature Shannon's soundscapes, written scores, and works from movement and visual artists.   

2019

INVOCATIONS (2019) is a sound Installation by Magda Magdi and Shannon Sea. It is a cyborg manifesto that invokes magic incantations. It examines the way we deconstruct and reconstruct language(s), and the way we understand capitalist realism, and utopian or dystopian binary modes of thinking.  INVOCATIONS has been exhibited at the Empowe/AR Festival 2019 in Berlin, and the Venice Art Factory in Venice, Italy. 

SONIC ACTIVISM

Sound Healing Sessions and Sonic Meditations. Shannon Sea believes in the transformational power of sound, and her relationship to sound is primarily meditative. Thus, she leads sound healing sessions and workshops in Berlin and throughout Germany; she also leads Sonic Meditation sessions.  These events feature a live-set performance of her minimalist and experimental music, and take participants on a sonic journey to heighten awareness, heal, and invite self-exploration.    

Social Justice.  Shannon also uses sound, in her performances and sound installations, to address social justice issues. For her, listening is a form of activism.
