"[Songs of the South] focuses on the duality between the beauty of the American South - mostly through a white lens - and the history of cruelty and oppression that has existed and still exists here, and how these two world views have coexisted together for centuries, despite the drastic difference between the two. In doing so, I've sampled and drastically altered old recordings of American popular songs and minstrel songs from the late 1800s and early 1900s, hopefully creating pieces that are haunting, disturbing, and - in their own way - beautiful."
