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) and 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. 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 is a new, slightly darker jazz element 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. Limited edition of 300 vinyl-only copies. Includes mp3 download.
