Praised by VICE Magazine as the “mistress of new music” and named as one of 2014’s Artists to Watch by The Fader, Lorna Dune—the moniker of Lorna Krier—has been turning heads since her foray into the world of electronic minimal techno production. An experimental pianist, who has played with likes of Steve Reich and the Philip Glass Ensemble, has a new take on weightier beat-driven techno which is both fresh in its approach to the genre and also a unique arrival through her journey through sound. Almost synesthesia-like images of “trawling Petar Dundov’s Adriatic waters with an arresting sheer Balearic decadence and holographic gleam” (Resident Advisor) appear in the amygdala upon first listen.
Her latest EP “Miamisphere” released by Brooklyn’s mysterious experimental electronic imprint Lo Bit Landscapes in 2013 has received premieres by Pitchfork and Boiler Room and has been featured in Resident Advisor, Red Bull Music Academy, VICE Magazine, XLR8R, Ibiza Voice and more. She has also caught the attention of the New York Times for remixing a Pulitzer Prize winning work by composer Caroline Shaw and also has an upcoming remix by composer Max Richter to be released on Detusche Grammophon.
Lorna Dune’s highly anticipated full-length album “Transmutation” is set to be released in Spring 2015.
