The music of Vesica Pisces has been described as “ancient sound, modern form”.

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, Vesica Pisces draws inspiration from across the globe in a tapestry of sound, breaking down genre barriers to create a truly unique musical experience.
Weaving eastern tinged guitar, cinematic layers of strings, exotic traditional percussion with down tempo beats, deep melodic bass lines, sound collage and design with soaring vocals, Vesica Pisces aspire to make music that is timeless, powerful, emotive and enchanting. 

The blending of these elements creates a sound that is often compared to the music of Nitin Sawhney (India/USA), and Dead Can Dance (Australia), and Cinematic Orchestra (UK). Lead vocalist Rebekah Ray is often compared to Katie Noonan (AUS) and Lisa Gerrard (AUS).

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. An album that stands the test of time. Something that we would be proud to show to our grandchildren. An offering to the collective for all that has inspired and driven us to create. This vision has taken many moons of dedication, perseverance and great initiation. The fruits of this labour is what we will be sharoing with you on this auspicious time, the Summer Slostice. 

There is an obvious uniqueness to Vesica Pisces music. The Music is strong; performed in the studio, and in the live setting by world class musicians whom have played as soloists and band members with some of Australia’s most successful acts including Angus and Julia Stone, Blue King Brown and Lisa Gerrard. The music of Vesica Pisces truly reflects the diversity, excellence and energy within contemporary Australian musical culture. As well as the fusion of eastern scales, time signatures and instrumentation with western harmonies and orchestration, Vesica Pisces' music has a message, a message of contemplation, a push to explore our directions in our search for what is truely sacred, for meaning and cross-cultural appreciation, inspiration and understanding.

The evening will include a performance by

CAVE IN THE SKY

7294211_orig.jpg



Cave In The Sky was formed by multi-instrumentalist Cye Wood.

He will be sharing music from the debut album Sönghellir, released by Swedish label 1631 Recordings. Sönghellir draws inspiration from both real and imagined landscapes, and was named after a cave located beneath Snæfellsjökull Glacier in Iceland where the final recordings for the album were made. 

What began as a collection of simple yet intricate pieces grew into an album that fuses a wide range of sound sources. These include Cye's use of piano, guitar, violin, field recordings and voice, and also contributions from Paul Corley (sound design), Hamish Stuart (drums), James Haselwood (bass), Simon Green (percussion/harmonica), Matt Ostila (percussion/bass), Tunji Beier (percussion) and Purdie Wood (vocals).

Equally at home in an intimate concert setting as on the festival stage, Cave In The Sky has mesmerised audiences around the world, including sets at Earth Frequency Festival 2016 (AU) and Landjuweel Festival 2016 (NL). This performance will also feature vocalist Purdie Wood.
