We approach a new work with great strength and enthusiasm. Your complicity is fundamental. Whenever you face a new project you seek for change, movement, new challenges. But, in this case, it wants to be a turning point, a significant change in the form and the result.
During 2019, VerdCel intends to launch its new work of a Book and two independent albums. Each album will be autonomous and have its own moment. Each will be a work in itself, as will the book, while all will be part of a joint work around the element 'air'.
MAKE IT POSSIBLE AND ENJOY IT!
Ever since the creation of the fourth album, VerdCel chose this system of cooperation and collective trust that is crowdfunding, in which the freedom of creation, the direct contact, the engagement of collaborators and the viability of a project can be possible. Feasibility in the sense of being able to carry out the different proposals in the world of culture, which suffers an incessant precariousness and, in turn, make you participants before and during the process of gestation. Also ensure a future by avoiding the difficulties arising from excessive dependence on third parties.
[CONTRIBUTIONS DESTINED TO:
Recording: preproduction, study and technicians.
Mixtures: study and production. Mastering
Expenditures of working days.
If we exceed the objective of €6,000, everything added will be more than welcome for the rest of the financing needed for the project: manufacturing, editing, communication.
- Please take into account the usual expenses: in addition to the shipping costs, it is necessary to add 5% + VAT for Verkami expenses, 1.35% + VAT for the payment with credit card, and for Paypal payments 3,4% + a fixed rate of €0.35 per transaction].
The communication channel that offers Verkami allows us to ensure a presale of the works in a short time, which will be the energy necessary to carry out the production of such works. Besides, the distinctive feature of crowdfunding is the variety and the exceptional nature of some of the rewards, especially created for the occasion and that cannot be acquired by other means. The complicity goes beyond the crowdfunding platform, the creators themselves, and reaches other artisans such as the brewers participating.
CLOSING A CYCLE, OPENING A NEW PATH
VerdCel plunged into the water with 'Els dies del Saurí' (2012), then it burned with 'Argilaga' (2014), and finally it set foot on the ground with 'De plantes, talaies i cims' (2017).
Our journey by your side through the elements closes with this fourth work where we will explore the air. In fact, the first work was possible thanks to your contributions in Verkami, as well as the works that followed, until we get to complete this quadriptych.
The air is the world of ideas, in terms of the song, where the challenges and the doors to discover are innovation, solidity and authenticity.
Originality, clarity and vanguard will be the keys.
The songs, drafts, comics and texts will be, in short, a rich project that will grow with the senses of those who approach.
Will you join us?
.- The new project will consist of 2 independent albums and a book. Everything will be related and part of the same work.
.- The world of air is the world of ideas, change and exchange of thought, duality, relationship with others.
.- In the planning of the project we have proposed many changes, either in the composition of the songs, the musical production, or the design of the book and the result of the whole work.

Last spring began the writing and composition of the songs, with the texts and the concept of the book. After the summer, we moved on to the preproduction of the songs and later the planning and content of the work.
At the end of this year and beginning of 2019 we will record and mix the albums, and start to elaborate the design and illustration and the texts of the book. The manufacturing phases, edition of the CDs, finalization and printing of the book will continue.
You will receive the rewards as a first, before the official launch.
We expect that you receive the first album by the end of winter 2018-2019 and the Book + the second album before its release and publishing.
Take part – collaborate – make it possible!
