Using a vocal range spanning five octaves, SORNE builds ethereal, operatic primal sonic compositions by looping and layering his supernatural voice. Mythic. Magic. Archetypal. Truly a performance to be experienced to be believed, Sorne’s stripped down, singular one-man drama moves through aspects of the human experience, reaching to spiritual realms by way of his voice.
The process of the performance is one of a personal reclamation of power and self-actualization by way of the voice, using this tool as a means of investigating the subconscious, memory, trauma and dreams.
Beginning with singular a capella lines, the performance gradually builds and crescendos, filling the space with a universe of sound.
This intimate experience will be limited to 50 people!

PRAISE FOR SORNE
“In the 45 years I have lived in LA, it’s the best thing I have ever seen.”
- Jay Levin, founder of LA Weekly
“The most gripping performance I have seen in years.”
- Ryan Smith of Caribou
"If Tool and Jeff Buckley had an orgy on Peyote in the desert and created a love child, that baby would be Sorne; Rooted in the transfiguration of suffering into something that gives life."
"SORNE is one of the most exciting voices to emerge lately; incendiary, hallucinatory storytelling”
- Newfound Journal
“Nonconformist in nature, brilliant in execution. This is absolutely phenomenal in every sense of the word. Music cannot get more unique and authentic as this.”
- Sputnik Music
"Easily one of the most eccentric and eclectic singers I have ever heard. An extraordinary and unique talent. Kinda ethereal opera electronica meets David Bryne and Kate Bush. Nothing else like it."
- Will Henshall
