We are very happy to announce our latest release, Theory by CiViLX. CiViLX is the electronic music project of Christopher Riley from Seattle, WA. and Theory is his full-length debut… 15 tracks of EBM and experimental industrial dance.

This week’s featured release is “The General Analysis of Nature” by Kurt Lorenz.
“Her Meaning is Muted” by Kurt Lorenz has been included as a bonus track to the “How to Catch STILLE?” compilation.No other art can endorse the importance of good hearing better than music. It is universal and transcends geographical, social and linguistic boundaries.
How to catch STILLE? is cought from the view of various musicians. What started as a remix album of AN MOKU’s first album STILLE became a higher meaning. The literal translation of the german word “Stille” is silentness/quietness. Each several track deals with the meaning of this. Hearing loss is a very significant matter. More than ever in hectical nowadays! One in every six people worldwide is affected by hearing loss. As the population ages – and noise pollution in the world increases – more and more people will be losing their hearing. The consequences of untreated hearing loss can extend as far as complete social isolation.
Name your price to buy this album and all of the money will be donated to the following non-profit organizations: World Wide Hearing and Sonos Schweiz.
According to the World Health Organization, 642 million people in the world suffer from hearing loss. Of these, 278 million suffer from hearing loss so disabling that actions most people take for granted, like having a conversation, are impossible for them without a hearing aid. The majority live in developing countries and almost none have access to hearing aids or services. The cost of hearing care is simply unaffordable and there are too few audiologists working in poor countries to provide treatment for everyone.
50% of your donation will be used to provide hearing aids to people, mainly children with hearing loss in developing countries.
50% of your money will be used to fund innovative research on the impact of treating hearing loss.
The Swiss organization Sonos Schweiz is going to use this project album to report back to me how the music has an effect on the kids and teenagers with hear loss. More info to come soon.
The period of this project is one year. After six months I will report at this Bandcamp page and my own webpage in detail about the donation and the same after one year.
Last but not least, speaking in words of the polish sound artist and founder of Etalabel, Grzegorz Bojanek: «Ludzie bez najmniejszego problemu płacą $5 za kubek kawy, jednakże miliony ludzi nie chcą zapłacić nawet $1 za piosenkę, której nagranie kosztuje często setki dolarów, do nagrania której artyści musieli ćwiczyć często wiele godzin i którą można słuchać w kółko, bez końca i pozostaje z nami już na zawsze… SZANUJCIE ARTYSTÓW – KUPUJCIE MUZYKĘ.»
To this effect – Please support this project, even if it is just $1. You do not have to be a member of Bandcamp to support. Together we can achieve something!
On behalf of all artists – Thank you for your support!
