Based in Montréal, Regina-born media artist and composer Erin Gee looks for human voices in electronic bodies. Articulating a feminist-materialist strategy for creation with digital tools, Gee accesses technology through the human body and its voices. She likens the micro-rhythms of emotion in the body to the rhythms of a vibrating vocal fold, exposing the material of affect as an embodied and embedded communicative tool.
Gee’s work in biosignal-driven choral composition, virtual reality, and robotics has been shown at numerous venues internationally including: Toronto Biennial of Art, Toronto (2019); FILE festival, São Paulo, Brazil (2019); Cluster Festival, Winnipeg (2019); Ars Electronica, Linz, Austria (2018); NRW Forum, Düsseldorf, Germany (2018); Trinity Square Video, Toronto (2017); MediaLive Festival, Boulder, Colorado (2017); and Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, Montréal (2015 ). Gee graduated from the University of Regina with a Bachelor of Music Education in 2006 and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2009, and from Concordia University with a Master of Fine Arts in 2014. Gee is currently pursuing a Doctorate in music at Université de Montréal.
