    Erin Gee is an artist and composer based in TIO’TIA:KE – MONTREAL. Through her work, Gee hybridizes new media, art-science and performance practice, using feminist epistemologies to foreground unconscious and affect-driven experience. Inspired by the human voice as a conceptual object, she likens the vibration of vocal folds to electricity and data across systems, or vibrations across matter. She is a DIY expert in affective biofeedback, using sensors to implicate the body of the listener as part of her cybernetic systems in place. Her vocal compositions, networked performance, ASMR, VR, AI and robotics have been shown internationally. Erin Gee is currently a doctoral student in the music department of the Université de Montréal, studying with Dr Nicolas Bernier and Dr Jonathan Sterne (McGill University) on the topic of feminist frameworks for biofeedback music. Gee’s research is generously supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.


    Erin Gee is a Canadian artist who uses sound and technology to transduce the invisible, embodied aspects of affect, communication, and presence. After earning an MFA in Studio Arts from Concordia University, Gee was an Assistant Professor at Concordia University (2015-2017) teaching Sound Production, Gender and Technology Studies, and Sound Studies. She is currently a doctoral student in Composition et Création Sonore at Université de Montréal, articulating feminist materialist compositional methods in biofeedback music. Her work in neural networks, choral composition, ASMR, virtual reality, networked music performance, and robotics have been shown in solo exhibition at MacKenzie Art Gallery (Regina) and in group exhibitions at Darling Foundry (Montréal), Toronto Biennale, NRW Forum (Düsseldorf), and Ars Electronica. Gee is currently artist in residence at the Institut quantique de l’Université de Sherbrooke in partnership with Sporobole artist-run centre.
