Erin Gee is an artist and composer based in Montreal, Canada, whose artworks emphasize sensuality, affect, haptics, communication, and presence in sonic and digital architectures. 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. Using her own physiological sensors to promote “embodied algorithmicity,” she is a DIY expert in affective biofeedback, implicating the body of the listener as part of her cybernetic systems in place. Her work in choral composition, networked performance, ASMR, virtual reality, AI, and robotics has been shown internationally at venues such as LEV Festival Matadero, MUTEK, Darling Foundry (Montreal), Toronto Biennale, Elektra Festival, FILE festival, Ars Electronica, NRW Forum (Düsseldorf), MediaLive Festival (Boulder USA), and Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal.
Currently Gee is a doctoral student in the Composition et création sonore program in the faculty of music at Université de Montreal, where she is articulating feminist materialist compositional methods in biofeedback music. She is also currently artist in residence at L’institut Quantique, Université de Sherbrooke in partnership with Sporobole artist run center 2021-2023.
Gee has received awards from the Canada Council for the Arts, and the Conseil des arts et lettres du Québec, as well as support from the Conseil des Arts de Montreal, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, and the Saskatchewan Arts Board. She is grateful for their continued support of the arts.
