[dREKKa] aka Michael Anderson performs heavily experimental, cinematic soundtracks to films unmade where the accompanying images are unique to each listener; stylistically and empathetically similar to the soundtracks of Tarkovsky’s later films or the more abstract works of Coil and Cindytalk.

[dREKKa]‘s sound is hushed, cinematic, ambient, ethereal and industrial… at times discordant and menacing, more often communicative and inviting. It is performed at a moderate volume, perfect for any small setting, including homes, gallery spaces, stores… music for those who enjoy filling in the gaps and the imagery that accompanies it.
Deeply felt inspiration is drawn from such luminaries as CINDYTALK, COIL, FLYING SAUCER ATTACK, HAFLER TRIO, NURSE WITH WOUND… contemporary examples of shared sounds could include SVARTE GREINER, MACHINEFABRIEK, CHRIS WATSON, STILLUPSTEYPA, IRR.APP.(EXT.) and WOUTER VAN VELDHOVEN.
[dREKKa] has undertaken over a dozen European excursions since 2002, including ITALY in 2010/2011/2012 and over fifty shows in the NETHERLANDS and ICELAND alone.

The Indiana Electro-Music Group & the Irving Theater proudly announce the Third Midwest Electro-Music Experience (MEME) Festival being held in Historic Irvington at The Irving Theater August 1-2, 2014. MEME is also supported by Sun King BreweryWorld of Vapor Indy and Wyliepalooza Ice Cream Emporium.
