The primary thing that distinguishes Somata from other bands is the way in which we embrace improvisation. Many bands that "jam" play off of pre-written riffs, usually without direction or dynamics. Somata not only improvises entire songs without previous discussion, but is able to deliver these improvisations with focus, emotion and originality. In addition, our improvisations are always punctuated with interesting and innovative electric and acoustic compositions.
