MD 008We are very happy to announce this limited release. This Tape is the last document in a series of three impressive performances that got recorded in the “Christuskirche Bochum” in Germany. The first performance is the live set by A-Sun Amissa (MD 004), which you can download on our bandcamp for free, the second one is the live improvisation “Cameo” by Aidan Baker & Maik Erdas (MD 006) which you can order in our store and finally comes the improvised live collaboration by Aidan Baker & A-Sun Amissa featuring Maik Erdas on Drums.

MD 008

What you can here on the Tape is the result of a spontaneous idea to play a collaboration as a quintet. A slowly growing piece, swelling and floating. Three guitars, viola and drums steady united into a 22minutes long piece that evokes different moods. Just listen to “17.02.2012 DE” and find out for yourself:

The Tape comes in a limited edition of 99 pieces in three different handmade and hand-die-cutted cardboard sleeves: 33 in graphite-black, 33 in medium-grey and 33 in deer-orange, made out of 300g cardboard. The Tape is pea-green and includes a 450g inlay card and a download code.

MD 004: A-SUN AMISSA – CHRISTUSKIRCHE BOCHUM 17.02.12

MD 004 - A-Sun_BochumA-Sun Amissa released their debut “Desperate in Her Heavy Sleep” in March 2012. Some days before Gizeh Records released the album, the band did a small tour through Europe supporting Aidan Baker. The show at Christuskirche Bochum hosted by thepostrock.de was in many ways a special event. A-Sun Amissa did a solo set, Aidan Baker played an improvised set with Maik Erdas (Kodiak) on Drums and as a special closure A-Sun Amissa played an improvised set with Aidan and Maik.

Now, we want to focus on the A-Sun Amissa set. Imagine three musicians sitting in a hemicycle in front of an altar. Fully focused in playing their instruments, sitting on wooden chairs, letting all sounds melt together, letting the sounds move through the church hall… This set has an ineffable gravity, moving between ambient, modern classic and blues sounds.

You can download the album for free here.

A-Sun AmissaA-Sun Amissa will be on tour with Aidan Baker again in February/March 2013.
