about

This special installation by Drekka was an experiment in exploring a specific space, outside the normal performance area, at a house show.

Drekka set up in the closet of one of the bedrooms in the house, running microphones and contact mics through the floor and down a hallway to reach the other performance areas.

Once begun, Drekka performed for the entire duration of the show; almost three hours total.

While other acts were performing, Drekka sat (usually alone) in the closet, continuing to create using the sounds of the other performers and the house as a soundsource.

Sometimes, the results offered live remixes of the performance taking place rooms away or in the basement... sometimes, the results offered a look into what goes on in the other rooms of the house while most are attentively watching elsewhere.

Between acts, audience members would return to the bedroom, relaxing on the bed and floor, as Drekka re-broadcast portions of the previous act in new, deconstructed ways... offering the other performers a chance to hear their own work through the broken machinery of Drekka's soundsystem.

A fun, if tiring, experiment that Drekka will seek to recreate in other rooms, in other hidden spaces, at other times.

about

Drekka Live Archive Bloomington, Indiana

I have always been obsessed with live recordings by bands I love... I have hundreds of Cure bootlegs, and the design on my archive harkens a certain seminal industrial band that I always loved the recordings of...

I hope this live archive can serve some purpose to someone out there... if not, I do it as much for my own amusement as anything else.

Enjoy.
