Electro trip-hop duo, m o k r o ï é, and Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer, Sergey Ponomarev, teamed up to shed light to the destructive aftermath of the war that is going on around the world. Ponomarev’s photos addresses the conflict in Syria and the refugee crisis, providing us with an evident contrast of photos before the bombing and afterwards. The intense trance of m o k r o ï é’s contemplative melody and Ponomarev bone-chilling images make a sonorous political, but also humanistic statement:

“Because” is from m o k r o ï é’s upcoming EP, G L O B A L – S Y S T E M – E R R O R, which will be released on March 3rd. it features the drumming of Dave Collingwood and Cyril Atef on the acoustic versions. m o k r o ï é is a collab project between Francesco Virgilio and Carol Aplogan, who combine electronic elements with other forms of art including poetery, photos, and spoken verse in their live performances.
