A-Sun Amissa is a new project formed out of Leeds, UK by members of Glissando. Built on the foundations of the unknown, this is a project that encompasses minimalist drones, modern-classical movements and avant-garde tendencies. Richard Knox (Glissando, Of Thread & Mist, The Rustle Of The Stars) & Angela Chan (Glissando, Ten, The Rustle Of The Stars, Tomorrow We Sail) began forming the initial ideas in the Autumn of 2011, moving away from the piano-led ambience of previous outputs. Long-time friend Owen Pegg was soon invited to join the project as the pieces developed to enable the songs the depth and intensity they required. The trio produce a dense, drone-like atmosphere accompanying evocative, melodic string sections and intertwining guitars. The live show features sections of the recorded output combined with improvisation to unlock new movements and progressions in the music. The subtle, considered textures and the hypnotic interaction between players and instruments provide an absorbing and intense live performance. October 2011 saw the first recorded output in the form of a 3" CD release as part of Hibernate Recordings' acclaimed "postcard" series. The release Beneath The Heavy Tides featured two tracks and serves as a prelude to Desperate In Her Heavy Sleep.
