Émilie Payeur is a multidisciplinary artist from Montréal, Canada, mainly active in experimental music and visual arts. Her music, often described as minimalist and sometimes harsh, is mainly based on the no-input technique and on risk-taking. In her visual work, she is interested in the traces she perceives as remnants of actions from the past and in the notion of the sacred, ritual and transcendence. Emilie has a master’s degree in electroacoustic music composition from the Université de Montréal and her work has been performed all over the world and has received numerous awards, both in Canada and internationally.

Emilie is a member of Dead Squirrels (noise music trio), Kohlenstoff Records (label and experimental music collective), Projet K (experimental ensemble), Moshi Moshi (experimental and Kawaii audio/visual trio) and Jeunesse Cosmique (music label and cosmic family).
