dogr (David Michael DiGregorio) is a musician currently based in New York. He studied piano, baroque music, and harpsichord. He made 16-mm motion pictures while fascinated by structuralism and the idea of film as musical composition. This, combined with the influence of singing choral traditional gospel, pop, Korean and American folk, and performing electro-acoustic music, now inspire him to create tectonic space through layers of voice and performance of melismatic storytelling.
Previous work includes musical composition for the solo exhibition of Sung Hwan Kim, the first artist to show solo at the Oil Tanks at Tate Modern, London, 2012, including the Tate-commissioned film Temper Clay.
