As if I existed for the sake of providing a place for
lichens to grow"

Krisztina Dányi, also known by her stage names 'WeAreGloria' and 'morningdeer,' is a Hungarian singer, composer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. She is best known for her unique sound, blending elements of house music, electropop, artpop, experimental pop, outsider music, and alternative music.

Krisztina made her first mixtapes at the age of seven and started studying and writing music at 11. Under the moniker 'morningdeer,' she released her debut LP 'Days' in 2011 and started performing as a lo-fi act around Budapest on several experimental jazz improvising sessions.

In 2012, ‘morningdeer’ got signed by a Tokyo-based label Whereabout Records, and released two more albums; ‘Concert On A Twig’ in 2012, and ‘Blue For B’ in 2015, followed by touring in Japan (2014) and in Central-Europe (2015).

Between 2015 and 2020, she recorded a collaborative EP with Farbwechsel co-label head S Olbricht, 'Grey Lichen' and made sound design for the 'Liberty Bridge – New Urban Horizons' installation at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia, 2018.

Her current project ‘WeAreGloria’ debuted in 2020 with 'PTS’, a music video directed by Kostil Luka (member of Kinopravda). With the unique use of visuals and deep fake technology, 'PTS' was selected for 'The World of Music Video' exhibition held by the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site at the Völklingen Ironworks.

WeAreGloria's project symbol is an artificial persona co-created with Capa Grand Prize-winning photographer Éva Szombat. WeAreGloria's first album, ‘Timeless’, was released on March 23rd, 2023, and features a collection of songs that explore themes of metamodern thinking, the anxieties of digital capitalism, and a playful deconstruction of EDM cliches. The album serves as the basis for a role-play and cyberpunk-fueled theatrical show and performance of the same name that debuted in December 2022 at the House of Hungarian Music.
