Praised by VICE Magazine as the "mistress of new music" and named as one of their Artists to
Watch by The Fader, Lorna Dune has been turning heads since her foray into the world of electronic music production.
As an experimental keyboardist & music producer, she is the founding member of Victoire, an “all-star all-female quintet” (Time Out NY) with composer Missy Mazzoli; collaborates with electro-punk feminist icon JD Samson of MEN; and has shared the stage with artists Steve Reich, Meredith Monk, the Philip Glass Ensemble, William Brittelle, Tristan Perich, Lukas Ligeti and more.
She has received commissions to celebrate Terry Riley’s 80th birthday, remix British composer Max Richter for Deutsche Grammophon, as well as remix the Pulitzer Prize-winning work by Caroline Shaw covered by the New York Times. She has appeared at the Whitney, MoMA, New Museum, Carnegie Hall, Benaroya Hall, Millenium Park, BAM and more throughout the US, Canada and Europe.
A passionate educator of music technology and advocate for the creation and performance of new music, Lorna has been sought after as a presenter, collaborator, performer, creator and curator. Having a background in classical, experimental electronic, techno, pop and indie music, she has quickly become a go-to spokeswoman for new music for curious audiences worldwide.
Currently based in Milwaukee, she is offering one-on-one in-person and online music production lessons aimed at developing artistic identity through compositional and technical skills using Ableton Live and the Push 2, as well as co-running the Ableton Milwaukee User Group.
