Biography

The formation of Digeometric began early in June of 2010 on the south side of Chicago. Their music can be described as a fusion of genres, combining the best of and not limited to Disco, Electronic, Funk, Improvisation, Jazz, Psychedelic, & good old Rock N Roll. Digeo, as they are called for short, have been able to greatly impact their audiences concert experience through emotional influence by way of their instrumental progressive jams. What started out as an open experiment in improvisation, slowly progressed into creating music with a strong foundation, in which the band is able break away from, and capture the essence of the moment by creating jams through spontaneity. Much of Digeos music can be considered an exchange of melodic phrases, spoken over rhythmic grooves speckled with predestined improvisational riffs and syncopated melodious shapes.

The name Digeometric is derived from the phrase Digital Geometry. As geometry questions an objects shape, size, relative position, and properties of space, Digeometric uses their instruments to explore music in the same manner. Each riff can be considered a musical expression, and by adjusting and playing with these expressions shape, size, position and properties, Digeometric is able to venture to the edges of their unique style, exploring the musical possibilities, which present themselves at the moment. The band features Dave Campbell on Guitar, Michael Duffy on Drums, Alex Francois on Tenor Saxophone, Alto Saxophone, & Keys, Marty Gierczyk on Tenor Saxophone & Ewi, and Ken Pecho on Bass. From one song to the next their audiences can experience somewhat drastic musical mood swings, as Digeometric alters their musical texture from smooth and sultry underlying soundscapes to rough and shifting melodic riffs.

Digeos unified goal is to communicate love and happiness through music. Above all things, they like connecting with their fans as much as possible, and uniquely offer many of their concert experiences for free as live recordings through a number of different websites, with the two most prominent being Soundcloud and BandCamp. Digeometrics music is really about the live concert experience, as each performance gives way to different jams and different melodic expressions each time a song is played. Digeo have yet to release a studio-recorded album, but fans should be on the lookout for something in late 2014.
