The digital music artist from Rocky Mountain House has released online a debut EP under his recording artist moniker, Curiousface.

Anyone who downloads the EP The Night of Sevens, and enjoys it, is asked to make a donation to the Save the Children Foundation.

“If you like the album, tell people. . . . If you really like the album, donate,” said Klingbeil, who made the EP earlier this year while he was teaching English in Japan.

The instrumental tunes feature two singers, including Lauren Harris, who encouraged Klingbeil to support the charity through his album.

While much of the music was created by Klingbeil with a MicroKORG synthesizer, other contributions were made by cellist Walter Roberts, singer Ambar Wedharti, and Klingbeil’s percussionist father and brother, Kelly and Cody Klingbeil.

Adding to the family involvement, his aunt, Jeannie Ozon Hoydal from Norway, designed the album’s artwork.

The Night of Sevens contains the threads of three stories.

The first is based on the fable behind a Japanese festival called Tanabata, in which star lovers can only meet once a year, on July 7.

The second story can be pieced together from Biblical references that will be displayed on iPod screens while a song is playing, and the cryptic third is Klingbeil’s secret.

The album can be downloaded from www.curiousface.com, which has a link to the Save the Children charity’s donation page.

Klingbeil next plans to move to Victoria to live with his brother and create a second recording, which will also be heavily influenced by stories, and will be released in conjunction with a novel. The artist promises he will then embark on a cross-country tour, which will stop in Rocky.
