It is with much delight and great honour that we welcome you
'Into the world' of Vesica Pisces.
Based in the Byron Shire, NSW Australia, we are an emerging 7 piece band blending traditional acoustic instruments with cutting edge electronica.
Our music clip for Pozible (check it out above if you haven’t already) was filmed in our home in the hills behind Byron Bay. Here we've written, rehearsed and prepared the songs for our debut album. We have been making music together for close to 2 years and in a short amount of time, we have performed at several Australian Festivals, including Splendour in the Grass 2012 and Byron Spirit Fest 2013.
Right now we are living and breathing the creation of By Water Formed!!
Our Pozible Campaign.
We are in the process of making our debut album and we need your financial help to bring the album to completion.
We are half way there but need your assistance to launch the music of Vesica Pisces!!
We believe that our debut album will assist us to successfully share our music with the world. We are calling upon your assistance to help make our dream become a reality!!
The making of Vesica Pisces' debut album has truly been a case of sourcing the funds, investing them, sourcing more funds, investing them too. It has certainly reflected the concept of 'bleeding for your art', so to speak. We are so passionate about our music and we want to make an amazing album that reflects our dedication.
To complete the album, we still need to finish electronic music production, track the final vocals and additional instrumentation and then mix, master and press the album.
We have already spent close to $15, 000 and require another $12, 000 minimum for the completion of the album.
These projected expenses include;
·$5300 electronic music production
·$2700 vocals tracking
·$1000 album artwork + pressing
Any money we receive that exceed the $12, 000 will go directly towards marketing and promotion of the album.
We have full intentions to launch ourselves internationally with this album, and to tour initially throughout Australia and Japan. If the budget target has been met from this our Pozibles crowdfunding process, the expected date for the completion of the album ' By Water Formed' will be December 2013. ( inshallah, oh happy day !)

The Music of Vesica Pisces
The vision for this album has been very grand from the onset: to compose beautiful, simple melodies inspired by music from around the world and to build around them a cinematic sound, rich and textural, seamlessly fusing acoustic instrument and traditional percussion with electronic beat programming, sampling and sound design. And to take our music to the concerts halls, theatres and festivals throughout the globe.
Featuring eastern tinged classical guitar, rich strings, deep melodic bass lines, a fusion of traditional hand percussion with downtempo beats, cinematic electronica and soaring angelic vocals we aspires to make make music that is timeless, powerful and bold. From the glacial waters of the Holy Ganges in India, the writing of 13th century Persian mystics, to the ancient Earth worship ceremonies of the British Isles, we draw influences from around the globe, aiming to break down genre barriers by fusing modern contemporary composition with the sounds of ancient times.
We couldn't be where we are without the support from our family and friends. For your encouragement and your belief in us we are deeply grateful.
We thank YOU for all your support in bringing our dreams to life and any contributions to the project whether it be financial, passing on this link or sending us love on this amazing journey that is beautifully consuming our lives
We are going to be posting updates each week here on our Pozible page, on Facebook and on Twitter so please come with us as we strive to reach our target and beyond.
May you all be enriched by the music of Vesica Pisces x
