“Fox’s compelling beats summoned tunes that were too chaotic to consciously decipher, but which subliminally extended deep within the body and the psyche.” – Jonathan W. Marshall, Real Time

Akioka is the solo project of Perth sound artist and experimental producer, Tessa Jane
Darcey. Using loops and improvised live sampling, she builds ethereal vocal soundscapes. Sometimes, if she feels like it, she peppers her sets with electronic sounds and songs using intricate beats and unsettling synths. She has been known to incorporate unexpected environmental sounds into live sets, including, but not limited to; the cracking open of a can, ambulance sirens and loud audience members.
