A-SUN AMISSA - You Stood Up For Victory, We Stood Up for Less
Catalogue #: GZH44 / GZH75DP
Formats: LP / CD / Digital
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.
