Her music was twice selected for Art in the Air, an international audio art festival and was included in Sonic Landscapes, a sound art exhibit held in Michigan, along with Mecca Normal and Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth.
"If you’ve heard the bass sound like this before, you’ve probably got rather left-field tastes. And yet Atkinson is an exceptionally friendly experimentalist, certainly not one to be afraid of.” – Alex Varty, Georgia Straight
