Erin Gee (she/her) 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 l’Université de Montréal, researching 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 a solo exhibition at MacKenzie Art Gallery (Regina) and in group exhibitions at the Fonderie Darling (Montréal), the Toronto Biennale, and Ars Electronica. Gee is currently the artist in residence at the Institut quantique de l’Université de Sherbrooke in partnership with Sporobole.
