I started working on Country Songs more than 10 years ago. I asked people of different countries to send vocal samples I could use for some new tracks. While working on the album I moved to another city, my computer broke, the new one couldn’t handle Photoshop and music software at the same time and so I prioritized photography. Therefore my project mockART took a long break. As you probably know, I already remastered the old mockART albums last year and republished them and I also recorded Living with Human Machines to get back into sonic experimentation. This year I finally found the time to remaster the tracks that were already recorded and to compose and record the missing tracks. So prepare for a journey into experimental sounds, structures and words.
To get into the mood, here are the to latest tracks I recorded. The vocals for Русская народная песня (Russian Folk Song) were provided by Sergei Khukhrov and Shirtless’ Mom was build around vocals by Zan Hoffman.
