Carpel Tunnel Vision Quest – music and a tarot deck

October 3rd, 2011 § 0 comments

This Kickstarter project is meant to support a band. But it’s not their music I’m most interested in. It’s the fact that this band wants to publish a Tarot deck.

Cash Pony, a San Francisco area rock-fusion band is trying to raise money to professionally record their first full-length LP, Carpel Tunnel Vision Quest.

But not only are they trying to raise money for recording, mixing, and mastering, they need the funds to print album artwork, and a small deck of Tarot cards.

The deck is being drawn by artist Chris Russell, and is inspired by the songs on the album and the spirit of the Tarot majors.

Songs like Omphalos, Native DNA, and Seek Truth seem to describe energies similar to the Emperor, The Empress and Judgment.

And there’s one called Price of Eggs picturing a giant glowing egg hovering above a land mass of sorts.

I can only imagine what the song’s about, but the card brings to mind the Fool ready to burst out of nothing and into the world.

This deck reminds me a little of Morgan’s Tarot, an oracle deck from 1970 that I especially like. It doesn’t follow the rules, but it makes a lot of sense.

To hear Cash Pony you can go to their website or watch the video below. And if you’re thinking of donating, visit their Kickstarter page.
