Barry DiGregorio has been playing experimental guitar synthesizer music since 2007 and electric guitar for over 30 years. His love of soundscape and soundtrack music is influenced by Vangelis, Hans Zimmer and Miklos Rosa. His three previous albums with the group New Wilderness are available on internet venues worldwide. In 1995 Barry had a CD of his instrumental guitar music “Guitar Sonata for Zero-G Listeners” taken into space aboard NASA’s Space Shuttle Discovery. In 2005 he again wrote an original guitar composition “Challengers” which was a tribute to fallen astronauts and cosmonauts.
Aside from his love of guitar music, Barry is a Research Fellow for the University of Buckingham's Center for Astrobiology in the United Kingdom where he studies the possibility of life in the universe. He is also a professional science writer and has worked for many magazines such as Earth Magazine, New Scientist, Microbe, Discover, and many more. In 1997 his book Mars: The Living Planet reexamined evidence for the possibility of microbial life on Mars. In 2011 Barry released the eBook, The Microbes of Mars.
