Mind Control by Mono Mind - Year of production 2019

Some more details about the Mono Mind concept: "I came up with the names pretty quickly, they all allude to someone or something from the pop history. Bright Jones plays on Brian Jones (Rolling Stones), Rain Davies on Ray Davies (The Kinks) and Dr Robot on The Beatles song "Doctor Robert"." "The voice is handmade using computer, it did not sound like that when I sang the songs. We have not used vocoders and such gadgets. Everything is created using different computer programs where I sang the songs in the wrong notes and in strange octaves, then we have stretched and bound in the vowels and consonants to create the voice and the phrasings."
