Our music is inspired by the Indian Ocean and the beautiful coastline of Western Australia. Over the last year, we have been creating improvisatory journeys from evocative, meditative soundscapes to rhythmic dance numbers. We have had four very brief periods together in Perth (in Feb 2012; Apr 2012; Jun 2012; & Apr 2013) recording in Lee Buddle's CRANK sound studios, and are very excited with the results. This is such a unique combo of sounds.

OK. Down to the nitty gritty money stuff...
So far we have paid CRANK studios $5000 for recording and editing. Now there's lots of mixing (levels, panning, reverb) and mastering magic to go. Lee is a wizard sound engineer who has been very generous with his time. We need about $3,000 more before we can hold the master disk in our hands.

Then there is the artwork, graphic design, printing and manufacturing of the CDs and their covers. We will do as much of the design as we can
ourselves. We are going for a card cover (more enviro-friendly and doesn't crack). To manufacture the CDs and covers etc and electronically register each song with an ISRC (international standard recording code) etc will cost us around $2,500. Then there are freight costs...

We are asking our friends, and anyone interested in our music, to buy a CD in advance by pledging $30, thus helping us to finance the rest of the mixing, mastering, manufacture and postage.

So, we have already spent $5,000 (plus several airfares) and we have about $5,500 left to go. Through Pozible, we are seeking $4,000
in advance CD sales - less than half of our $10,500+ costs. We will self-fund the rest (gulp). We are not asking for your charity, just your help in advance. And we need some encouragement that our music is of interest out there (we like it...). Can you help us? If we don't reach our goal of $4,000 then your pledge with not be taken from your account and the project will be put off until we can afford to finish it. Please help us get our CDs out there.

All going well... we plan to have the CDs finished by early August. So we will have CDs ready to post to you in August. Thank you for your encouragement.

NEWS:
Breath is touring Japan in September / October this year, giving concerts from Kumamoto in the south through to Fukushima, where we have been invited to perform for kids and adults in a range of facilities and festivals in mid October. Our goal is to have fun with the kids in Fukushima who are stuck indoors due to radiation fears. We can't wait to go! Check out our website for concert dates. http://breathtrio.com
