Erica Miller is an interdisciplinary artist, cellist, and composer based in Chicago. Her work embodies a relationship between natural and artificial sound, movement of the body, meditation, and consciousness. In her music, she takes a personal approach in an exploration of sonic landscapes using an interweave of extended technique, drones, prepared instrumentation, electronic looping, and feedback. She performs with several improvisational and genre-free groups throughout Chicago and the US.
