Sion Dey is a multi instrumentalist and composer. He briefly played session guitar with Mike Ladd for a while and in the two years since completing his musical studies, Sion Dey has scored a number of documentaries and short films.
He recently finished working on I Am Dying, a documentary special for The National Geographic Channel helmed by Academy Award® winning directors TJ Martin and Dan Lindsay. The documentary chronicles people’s final days before death, celebrating their lives and legacy through verité footage, home movies, photos and interviews with friends and family. Producers include Joaquin Phoenix, Casey Affleck and Mary Lisio of Ridley’s Scott’s production company, Scott Free.
Martin and Dey are also developing a project entitled Remember, a three channel installation examining issues of race and the human body. He composed the music for the Darren Aronofsky helmed campaign for the New York Times; short films chronicling the lives of four photojournalists in the search to uncover the truth within various aspects of conflict and displacement.
His last project, experimental documentary Ramblin’ Freak, director Parker Smith’s debut feature premiered at SXSW which the Indiewire Critics’ survey named as one of the best docs of the festival.
Sion has been commissioned to write and produce his first album, focussing on the themes of memory and forgetting, which promises to be a beautiful body of work from this exciting, young composer. The record is set for release in 2017.
