Annea Lockwood is a composer-performer from New Zealand. She studied in England, Germany, and Holland, and moved to the U.S. in 1973. She has done walk-in sound environments, instrumental pieces, events, editions of sound clothing, and sound sculptures. She is compiling an archive of recordings of the world's rivers, for use in performances and in "environments". With Allison Knowles, Lockwood has published street music on tee-shirts. They also co-edited a magazine called "Women's Work" in which performance scores by women artists in various fields are published.

Annea Lockwood's work is concerned with the concept and use of sound as a primary source of energy, and with increasing awareness of its effects on the human metabolism. She writes: "Each piece is concerned with evoking a force-sound, making this force/energy materialize and become quite clear to all there. The players then can't just simply 'learn to play' my pieces, They'll find themselves going through a training course to discover what is meant by sounds and their energy. To discover how to transcend through themselves. To learn the fine edge of sound as a destructive or misapplied force (un-perceived tone perhaps) and sound as transformer or as something wholeness making."
