Andrea Williams, sound artist, utilizes site-specific elements and perceptual cues to reveal the unseen connections between people and their environment. For over ten years, she has been creating compassionate spaces for restoration, creativity, and healing through various modalities including soundscapes, sound walks, SleepWalks (sound walks in people’s dreams), and yoga based on concepts of acoustic ecology and deep listening. Her compositions make use of field recordings, instruments, computer technologies and the sound of the performance space itself. She has exhibited her work and performed both solo and with various musicians and artists at galleries and alternative spaces internationally.
She is a board member of Ma Series Arts, a certified restorative yoga teacher, a sound healing practitioner, and she has studied our connection to waterways via sound walks with Pauline Oliveros at RPI, obtaining her Ph.D. in Electronic Arts in 2018.
