We are Infected and why this project?
Americans check their cellphones or mobile devices over 9 billion times per day; 50% also check their phones in the middle of the night. Technologies are quickly changing the way we deal with our emotions and how we interact with others. Amassing "likes" and receiving validation online has become more important than actual interactions with real human beings. The convenience of having a computer in our pocket 24/7 has radically changed how we interact with the world, and the grand experiment is changing how we feel about ourselves and others. We are infected is yet another voice / light on this issue raising consciousness towards using technology more responsibly; not as a pacifier, but as a way to actually better ourselves.

New age/World musician/composer Art Tawanghar combined electronic production, live instrumentation, and a variety of wide-ranging cultural influences when crafting his uniquely relaxing and soul-searching sound. Working independently as well as with the Majorhit label, Tawanghar released his spiritually searching album Soul of the Earth in 2016. He followed the next year with Buddha Lounge, an instrumental album that fused mellow beats and synthesizer tones with meticulously arranged parts for harp, oboe, and other instruments less commonly implemented in electronic production. Upon its release, the album ranked in Billboard's chart for Top Independent Albums. Tawanghar often performed live in support of both albums.
