With « G L O B A L - S Y S T E M – E R R O R », the new chapter from m o k r o ï é, it's about exploring the atavistic tendency of the world to its self-destruction. The subtitle is moreover explicit :[ man's inability to refrain from war, and the crisis it ensues ].

As always with m o k r o ï é , the idea began with the composing, the programming, and the layering of the instrumentals.
It is not a coincidence to say the least, how seamlessly the vocals fit. Allonymous's emotive, and dynamic voice is quite at home here, and is featured on all four tracks. The hypnotic, full on electro versions are tempered with acoustic versions. Featuring the drumming of Dave Collingwood, or Cyril Atef.
For the visual part, (music-videos / artwork) the goal was to paint humanity in its stark light, relying on Sergey Ponomarev's photos. An original vision and expression that adds to the depth of this project.
He knew Sergey's photographs would be the keystone around which this project would be more heartbreaking and intense.

BIOS :

m o k r o ï é,
is the electro/trip-hop multidisciplinary artistic project created by Francesco Virgilio, with a long collaboration with singer Carol Aplogan. According to his inspirations, Francesco invites musicians and artists of diverse backgrounds depending to the colour of the project. This particular project explores and works electronic music, poetry, spoken verse, song, photographs, video, and live performances.
m o k r o ï é has always been considered by its creator as a living material, a spiritual adventure-related and open to all forms of artistic expression.

Allonymous, a dynamic spoken word artist, emotive singer and songwriter was born and raised in Chicago, he lives now in Paris. Through hard work and serendipity, he met many people, then plays live in guest appearances with The Cinematic Orchestra, Cheick Tidiane Seck, & Les Nubians. He's recorded and toured with Basement Jaxx, Jimi Tenor and Tony Allen. He's the co-lead singer of the psychedelic sextet The Afrorockerz who've opened up for Bilal, and Manu Dibango. Their self titled debut album is in heavy rotation on Radio FIP. Equally he co-leads the rock soul coalition Push Up, including Sandra Nkaké. His tracks have been remixed by Larry Heard, Markus Enochson, Riton, Calvin Harris, & Black Joy.

Sergey Ponomarev is one of today's finest young Russian photojournalists. Best known for his photojournalism works depicting Russian daily life and culture as well, as news images from wars and conflicts in Middle East including Syria, Gaza, Lebanon, Egypt and Libya. Sergey has won many international and domestic photography awards. Most recently, he won first place prize, in the General News category at World Press Photo contest for European Refugee crisis, and then the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography.

Cyril Atef (add. drums on « So They Walked [acoustic] »): is a drummer and percussionist, founder of Bumcello and Congopunq, instrumentalist for many artists in tours and studio (Matthieu Chedid, Alain Bashung, Cheb Mami, Brigitte Fontaine, Bernard Lavilliers, l’Orchestre national de Barbès)

Dave Collingwood (add. drums on « Because [acoustic]) » is a drummer based in Bristol, UK. He played live and in studio for many years for artists such as Yann Tiersen, Neil Davidge (Massive Attack) and Gravenhurst. As an experienced producer, Dave has recorded, mixed and mastered many albums, including his own, in his home studio in Bristol.

Track Name: BECAUSE
BECAUSE
Mommy says it's because the Presidents want to protect us from the bad people.
Daddy says it's too complicated for me to understand, but it has to do something with the left voting for the right,
or the right voting for the left.
Or because of all the bad people don't believe in the Good Book.
Because our Creator up in the sky has big plans for us down here.
That He's not happy with the bad people hurting us with their guns, and making us come home to Him up there.
My auntie says everything is going to be alright, and one day everything is going to go back to the way things used
to be. Because we can't see the forest for the trees, like the nice man with the crooked glasses used to say.
I really hope so. I really hope.
Not I, no economies crash, and future FEMA camps plans are laid.
We long to wake from this nightmare. If only we laid still in the bed we've made!
No time for dreaming. Drones are aimed at ordinary citizens. Straw man's owned and paid by the black hand that
pulls the strings.
Pray in reverse and behold the results it brings! Few can say they've witnessed our leaders praying under lock and
key.
Key witnesses always there to bear their testimony.
Blood on their hands too real!
But we prefer the phony news accounts, scenarios, & explanations.
Drilled into our consciousness, and our everyday lives.
As these drills in real time claim too many, (one would surmise) or in reality
Not any.
We are one. We are all one and the same, as we move forward to a One World Order. With the same divide &
conquer. Same imperialistic games, and who gains? And who complains? Come hell, or high water, fire, pyre,
building up to smash to pieces! Peace is not what they want. It's up to them, for they started it! And it's been going
on for so long! So long comrades, so long my country so long!
The wicked world must end!
Some are in the business of defense
which leaves the enemy defenseless.
Got fences around what we appropriately call our own.
Always picking fights with those that are bigger than them.
By the powers that be, moreover by the powers we cannot see.
See.

Track Name: SO THEY WALKED
SO THEY WALKED

And so they walked
To where there was a clearing
And built many cities, and named them after themselves
And had many offspring
Here's where they lived, here's where they dwelled.

And their brothers, and fathers, and mothers walked away
To where there was a body of water
And built cities
And had many sons, and daughters
And they began to fight amongst each other.


And so they walked
To where they found mountains
And built cities, and named them after themselves
And so they fled
And named themselves, renamed themselves
And fought amongst each other
And so they walked
And found a new land
Whose inhabitants did not share
The same names, the same features, the same values, the same deities.


Refuting how we obviously came to be
Across the waters (to) get away from me
Me is everywhere, even between the pages
I swear, evacuees to refugees

Refuting how we obviously came to be
Across the waters to get away from me


We stay, stray from our origins to set up camp.
Immigrants vs refugees the International topic of the day
Those unfortunate souls, yes those
Deemed as subhuman (to welcome me, to welcome me)
Whose worth, (to welcome me, who welcomes me?)
And self worth, (to welcome me, to welcome me)
Will never amount (to welcome me, who welcomes me?)
To the national debt (to welcome me, to welcome me)
Said my man Talaam Acey (to welcome me, who welcomes me?)
And this was happening stateside
How all of our governments were formed, a word to the wise
Whose worth, (to welcome me, to welcome me)
And self worth ( to welcome me, to welcome me, to welcome me)
Will never amount (to welcome me, to welcome me, who welcomes me?)
Who welcomes me? Who welcomes me? Who welcomes me? Who welcomes me?
