The New York Times described his work Strata as “a blissful and compelling mix of Minimalist-derived rhythmic ecstasy and nightclub beats”. His music has been commissioned and performed by ensembles and institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art’s Summergarden Series, Metropolis Ensemble, Wordless Music, Celebrate Brooklyn! summer concerts, Ensemble LPR, Nu Deco Ensemble, the Alvin Ailey Dance Company, New Juilliard Ensemble, ACO Underwood Readings, Quintet of the Americas, the Colorado Ballet at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, and the Sacramento Ballet.

Kate Simko has carved an international career as an electronic music producer, film composer, live performer, and DJ. Hailing from Chicago, Kate’s music reflects the city’s underground sounds, as well her background in classical piano. While studying music at the university, Kate began DJing on Chicago’s WNUR radio and taking jazz piano lessons, which inspired a shift from classical piano into a new direction as a DJ and composer.
Kate’s musical output includes four albums, various EPs, and film soundtracks. Kate’s past production includes a remix of Philip Glass, which appeared in Billboard’s Top 100 Classical Chart. In 2008, Kate composed her first feature-length film score for the PBS documentary The Atom Smashers. The ambient, meshed with classical, soundtrack on Ghostly International was a turning point in Kate’s musical direction.
Kate released her first solo album, Lights Out, in 2011, on the Berlin-based Hello? Repeat label. A ’live cinema’ interactive audio-visual show accompanied the worldwide album tour. In 2012, Kate’s song ‘Go On Then feat. Jem Cooke’ topped the end-of-year house music charts, and Kate has since released on respected labels such as Get Physical, No. 19, and Last Night On Earth. Named one of Chicago’s “Top 10 DJs” by XLR8R Magazine, Kate has played clubs and festivals around the world.
In 2014 Kate completed a Masters in Composition for Screen at the Royal College of Music, where she founded her genre-bending project London Electronic Orchestra. LEO have played a handful of acclaimed live shows to date, including London's Roundhouse at the iTunes Festival, LEAF, the National Gallery, Latitude Festival, and Bestival. An international tour is planned for 2016. www.katesimko.com
