A project that encompasses minimalist drones & modern-classical movements. Limited to 300 copies. A-Sun Amissa is a project formed out of Leeds, UK in 2011 by members of Glissando and The Rustle of the Stars.. Built on the foundations of the unknown, a project that encompasses minimalist drones, modern-classical movements and avant-garde tendencies. Richard Knox (Glissando, The Rustle of the Stars, Of Thread & Mist) & Angela Chan (Glissando, The Rustle of the Stars, Ten, Tomorrow We Sail) began forming the initial ideas in the Autumn of 2011, moving away from the piano-led ambience of previous outputs. New album 'You Stood Up For Victory, We Stood Up For Less' sees A-Sun Amissa moving in a more dense direction, the drones are heavier, the sound thicker and with the added bass-clarinet of Gareth Davis there a new slightly darker jazz element now to the music. The two tracks were conceived initially as two drone guitar pieces, following that, work was done on the composition and atmosphere of the tracks adding the bass-clarinet, viola, vocals, field recordings and piano. The finished works produce an unsettling but hypnotic listen with melodies moving in and out of the mix throughout these two pieces. 'You Stood Up For Victory, We Stood Up For Less' is released a year on from A-Sun Amissa's debut 'Desperate in Her Heavy Sleep' (Gizeh). The band will tour the UK and Europe in February and also play a handful of UK dates with Barn Owl in April. Recorded at Cloud Blunt Moon and City #1, Leeds in October & November 2012. Mixed by Richard Knox. Mastered by James Plotkin. Photography by Frédéric D. Oberland. Layout & Design by Richard Knox
