Erin Gee is an artist and composer who promotes critical 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. Gee applies these principles to electroacoustic composition, ASMR, virtual reality, networked music performance, interactive sculptures, AI, and robotics. She is a DIY expert in affective biofeedback, using biosensors to implicate the body of the listener as part of her cybernetic systems in place. She is currently a doctoral student at Université de Montréal, specializing in methods for composing affective and embodied electronic music for biofeedback inspired by feminist theory. Branching further into materiality and mattering, she is currently exploring quantum systems as artist in residence at the Institut quantique de l’Université de Sherbrooke.
