Shannon Soundquist

Shannon Soundquist is a sound artist and radio producer. She holds degrees in art history, psychology, communication studies, and studied media art with Carsten Nicolai / Alva Noto, currently with Nevin Aladağ. She works conceptually with sound, text, graphics and typography. Her live sets are cinematic, dark, noisy, non-tonal and conceptual. The sound works are based on the de- and reconstruction of body sounds and speech material that poetically revolves around the subject’s condition in society. Her works are both installation / radio play and performative. Her research question on sound is: How can body sounds and speech be morphed into abstract electronic sounds and vice versa? What does the boundary of understanding and meaning feel like?
