In 1999 artist Alex K began working with abstract sound and electronic instruments while in college. It was the turn of the millennium with lots of excitement about the coming 21st century – we were either headed for a collapse of all society with Y2K or going to get flying cars, jetpacks and our own robots. Well, neither happened. Maybe he read Neuromancer too many times but the ideas surrounding artificial intelligence, space exploration, “ghosts in the machine” and whatnot have stuck in the creation of his dark electro project Digital Geist.
From the start Digital Geist has filled a massive portfolio of work. Now living in New York City Alex has performed live hundreds of times in the northeast USA, southeast and central Canada and even in the European Union – most notably at Detroit’s Movement 2003, the World Electronic Music Festivals 2007 and 2008, Brussels, Belgium, a residency in Buffalo New York and of course a few times in NYC.
With already several white label and released remixes and two surprising hit releases available worldwide – 2006’s The Zero Engine and 2009’s Motorcade EP – the long awaited album The Apollo Program has finally arrived. Check the site often for more info and news regarding the project!
