Alexandre Tannous has been active as a musician, educator, composer, ethnomusicologist, sound researcher and as a sound therapist. He holds a Bachelor of Music in Theory and Composition and a Master of Arts degree in Music Education as well as a Master of Arts and a Master of Philosophy degrees in Ethnomusicology from Columbia University.
For the past six years he has been researching the properties of sound from scientific, shamanic, and historical perspectives. This has lead him to design a protocol he calls “Sound Meditation” where a specifically designed sound can have the ability to help us to disconnect from habitual patterns while listening to the traditional instruments he plays.

For the Fourth Annual TEDxBrooklyn, 7ONE8 designed the slide presentation illustrating Alexandre “Sound Meditation”.
