Lorna Dune (Brooklyn, NY)
Lorna Krier is one of the most versatile young keyboardists in New York performing music from experimental to pop on anything from analog synthesizers to toy pianos to Steinways. Ms. Krier has been described as “a pianist specializing in contemporary music, who has become an expert synthesizer player and is helping break down the boundary between new classical and indie rock” (Lukas Ligeti). Acting as an advocate for new music, she has worked with some of the nation’s finest young composers and performers to create exciting new works.
Since arriving in New York in 2006, she has been a founding member of many ensembles including the chamber-rock ensemble, Victoire, founded by composer Missy Mazzoli, which has been dubbed the “all-star, all-female quintet” (Time Out NY). They released their debut EP, A Door Into the Dark, on eMusic.com in 2009 and their first full-length album, Cathedral City with New Amsterdam Records Fall 2010 to critical acclaim. Lorna Krier has also co-founded the synthesizer project Love Like Deloreans, which released their self-titled EP on Friendly Ghost Recordings in 2009 and have performed throughout New York, Montreal, San Francisco, and Boston at festivals such as the Rooftop Films Festival, Knitting Factory’s NY Eye & Ear, City Sol, Brooklyn Arts Council's "Glitch Generation", Z-Arts! Festival in Zion, Utah, among others. Finally, the most recent project in which Ms. Krier has been initiated as a member is the genre-bending experimental improv group, Kaleidoscope Point, founded by composer-percussionist Lukas Ligeti.
