"I have been performing as DREKKA since 1996, although I started making sound around 1986.
DREKKA 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… contemporary examples of shared sounds would include SVARTE GREINER, MACHINEFABRIEK CHRIS WATSON, STILLUPSTEYPA, 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.
Previous European tours have included tourmates RIVULETS (Important/Chairkickers), JESSICA BAILIFF (Kranky/Morc), ANNELIES MONSERE (Auetic/Bluesanct) and VOLLMAR (St. Ives/Bluesanct); all of whom DREKKA has also played ambient guitar/misc. instruments/vocals with on stage.”

uncertain is a music project started by artist, composer, poet, occultist, and androgyne Florian-Ayala Fauna in the WinterSolstice of 2007 during a dark night of the soul + Florian was later joined by vocalist and percussionist Felix Keigh in SummerSolstice of 2013 after revelations + visions through scrying with an obsidian black mirror + They are currently looking to find a suitable record label and perform live rituals in the Buffalo, NY area.
Their work seeks to collect, arrange, dissect, create, disfigure, beautify, set fire to, seed, and manipulate delicate, fragile sounds that vary from the organic to the unearthly. Sound sources frequently found in their music include natural field recordings, the noises of animals, processed acoustic instruments, synthesized and mangled electronics, and sounds found on decaying magnetic tapes.
“I am a great admirer of Florian-Ayala Fauna’s work […] Truly beautiful.”
- David Tibet, 2012
“I think [their] work is remarkable — rich and devoted and fulfilled by gifts both fully evident and mysterious with promises that I can feel more than locate.”
- Dennis Cooper, 2011
Buffalo’s own Lara Buckley perform what one could only describe as “witch folk”: “a strange delight, bird songs, whale songs, wolves and a myriad of wild calls to create a place that is beautiful and scarey”
