She recently released a album on CDBaby.com called Inaudible Women, containing 11 songs named after big-shots in the music industry. With song titles like “David Drummond (Google, Youtube),” “Robert Walls (Clear Channel),” and “Chris Harrison (Pandora),” she’s calling out people who run the digital streaming world. Shocked is associated with a campaign called CopyLike which, according to their website, is made up of artists who defend their copyright and intellectual property.
Shocked insists that the album isn’t silent. Instead, it’s aimed at a completely different audience: dogs. “We love our furry friends. They share our beds, our toothbrushes, and they share our burgers,” she said in a weird video introducing the project. “We decided we would make a high album — in fact, the highest album ever made. Just so that my friends Spot and Rex can hear it, not audible to human ears, and to raise money for my tour — never in the history of recording music has it been this easy to keep Spot happy and support working musicians.”
This is perhaps the most significant recording for canines since the Beatles tossed a 20-kHz tone onto UK copies of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band back in 1967. Shocked suggests that you stream the album for your dogs while you’re at work, which will make her a few bucks and (perhaps) keep the furry friends from finding your toothbrush on their own.
