About

DREKKA (US) Working under the name DREKKA since 1996, composer Michael Anderson has explored early industrial tape culture, fragile bedroom noise-folk, and expansive cinematic textures. His work and performances touch on themes of silence, memory, and forgetfulness. But rather than obscure himself, DREKKA functions as a direct line into Anderson's mind and his tenuous cache of memories. These personal aspects and this fragility are clearly on display, rather than being obfuscated by poetic abstractions. Just as prominent, particularly in the live setting, is a sort of confrontation; a wrestling with frenetic energy that approaches mania or ecstasy. As DREKKA's recordings serve not to obscure but to exhibit Michael Anderson's mind, his performances serve to exhibit his person, his body. DREKKA's audiences behold not an anonymous face in the glow of a laptop, but a man riding his flimsy card table strewn with tape players, bells, trinkets, metal, and pedals. They behold a man's spirit riding him, contact microphone in mouth, hands shifting cassettes collected over time and distance; a confrontation of spirit, body, memory, and sound. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqP1VlniTF0 https://drekka.bandcamp.com/ MOUNT ROYAL https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7egsLmQVzvw&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR1J6wiwVAGLlERs0ew6D3v8L8FzOLnTdDtUoVHSBds1LvCyP7v16ZvtU6w MORE TBA
