1) AkA Electronic Music project was grounded in 1993 by Henri Sizaret with the aim to go further in the inspiration triggered by the work of Richard H. Kirk, Uwe Schmidt and Vince Clarke.

AkA music is artificial, snappy, electronic and metronomic.
Almost 15 years after its inception and more than 50 tracks, AkA philosophy remains the intact : to be a skin (hence the name “AkA” for Also Known As) for Henri to play with music and create, freed from day light life.

AkA’s album Proton MX (EP) is out on Cinoci Records (free download), and released “Metal In My Body” on Cinoci Records “Broadcast” Compilation on iTunes.

Recent tracks include “CounterPoint”, “‘Gotta Go to Vegas” and “Mandibular”.

2) AKA is an Indonesian 70’s hard rock band, fronted by Ucok AKA. The band is no longer existed but Ucok is still touring with his solo work. Afro-powered heavy distortion meets mathematic funky beats in a strange prog rock vibe.
