"We're on a Mission from God."
I am Tekx Fenix, Chief Director and Producer for Chakra Productions, an online based media company I founded back in 1997 in Houston. I’m a Native Texan, and have been influenced and appreciate the wide range of music that comes out of Texas. I feel like fusion sounds and genre remixes are really where it’s at, and am always on the look out for bands that can show their roots and add something new to create a distinctive sound. I play bass, hand drums, harmonica, didgeridoo, and back up vocals/tuvan throat singing.
I was very active in the music scenes in L.A. and Houston during the 90's. While I was still in L.A., I was a radio DJ, as well as for house parties. I got into the rave scene at the time, learned about guerilla show production, and attended many warehouse shows. I played bass in a 70’s rock cover band. I was also learning film editing, writing, and directing. I was Assistant Editor to the Music Editor for Public News, a weekly newspaper, as well as a contributing writer. I edited the Houston Musicians Registry, which put me in contact with all of the gigging bands in town. I was also a percussionist in a World Music band called Dancing Shiva. This was when I founded Chakra Productions.
In 1998, I went to France for the Summer, got to attend a week long World music festival in the middle of France called the Printemps aux Bourges, and visit the l'Académie Internationale de Musique Electroacoustique de Bourges. I promoted Dancing Shiva, and gave out our demo tape everywhere I went. Returning to the States in the Fall of ’98, I produced a benefit concert, R.O.A.R. (Rock Out Against Rape), benefiting victims of sexual assault in the Greater Houston area, with Small Craft Advisory, Marble Jar, Sinister Sirens, and Dancing Shiva. I wrote articles, shot and edited videos and stills, recorded studio sessions and live performances, booked venues and produced shows. In short, I did every aspect I could get at until Public News closed its doors, and the Houston scene dried up in 2000.
In 2010, after I had settled in Austin, a fellow musician from those times reached out about making a documentary as a project. I agreed it would be a good project an signed on as Asst. Producer, Interviewer, Videographer for When We Ruled H-Town, a documentary on the Houston music scene of the 90’s. I few short hops later and my production company went online hosting productions, and expanding musicians’ webpresence. Our specialty now is music video with drone camera shots incorporated, and we are looking forward to rolling out 360 degree, and VR interfaces in the next few years.
