Franco Di Gregorio aka Di Gregorius was born in 1976 into a family of musicians from several generations. He learned drums and percussion with his father first, then continued his studies with the teacher Gaston Buenseñor.
He was part of the experimental group “The Fumanchu Entertainment Corporation”, one of the Uruguayan’s pioneer bands in experiential psychedelic matter with an approach closer to the avant-garde ... He’s best known as the drummer for “La Hermana Menor” with whom he played for seven years. In addition to presenting himself in several festivals in Uruguay and in Argentina, he participated in recordings and live shows as a guest for various bands from the underground scene. For the past 10 years he also operates as artistic producer, guru guide, percussionist and vocals in the experimental progressive psychedelia music band “IMAO”.
His latest project “Tal Y Tanto Arriba, Tal Y Tanto Abajo”, compiles 16 years of his in-house investigation in electronic music and has been released on “My Own Jupiter”, Nicolás Lutz’s label.
The body’s beat and the brain’s waves merge into a transmission of soundscapes, ideas, concepts and experiences. Genderless, untagged and with much relish. Impossible to get through without being touched somewhere. His music: a reflection of this bold character, without musical prejudices and anti-systematic… Unpredictable.
