Description

In 2009 Mo Rooneh launched MONOCHROME.
MONOCHROME is an ongoing solo project showing different shades of the inner colour of the artist.
Rooneh uses all kinds of media to get across his messages and thoughts.
His audio can be characterized as minimalistic.In Rooneh's compositions the use of noise is very prominent.
“Generating noises and letting them entwine within a compositionreinstates a certain reality”.
Rooneh's admiration for the minimalists can be heard in the frequent usage of repetition and arpeggiated chords and sounds.
Rooneh's concept album 'Songs that might be', contains 10 rough sketches in which sound and speech are combined into thoughts of songs that might be.
By leaving it at that, it becomes an expression in itself.
Name it what you will: music, soundscaping or poetry.
At this point it has legitimacy in it's own right, being that what it is, namely an expression.

About a lazy afternoon.
Lying on my back in the garden, counting plains up in the air.
It’s meaningless and of no importance. 
But most of the songs have no message what so ever.

Sixty-One seconds of silence
within your own environmental sounds.
 
Based on  ” 4’33”  by John Cage.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Track no 4.
Sound arrangement & words: Rooneh
 
A song about our mortal coil.
Vermin scavenging away the carnal wasteland after we’ve been laid to rest,
just leaving our bones as a memory from within.
In this song I can hear the sound of a Mardi-grass brass band, playing at a funeral.  
A lazy tempo, 
still,
in major key.
 
Voice and bells: Mo Rooneh.

Track no 5.
Sound arrangement & words: Rooneh
 
This one needs a surreal subject.
Trees, lots of trees, but it’s no forest, just trees.
Lined up straight, in a big square.
Children running, playing hide and seek.
Every single tree is being painted green by the children’s parents.
And when I look closely, I see they are all male.
This has to be father’s day.

Track no 9.
Music & words: Rooneh
 
A song about my father.
He died on a summer’s day in July.
And when I closed his eyes,
and looked at her, 
I saw a tear, running down her cheek.
I don’t know why I didn’t cry, I just didn’t.
Sometimes I can still feel his face,
in the palm of my hand.
 
Voice and piano: Mo Rooneh.
