In 2016 Simon Pitt and Alex Kassian formed Planet Sundae Recordings. ‘Opal Sunn II’ is their third release.
Part I was out July 2017 with Andrew Weatherall taking a massive shine to it, playing all 4 tracks at a gig in Barcelona.
It was championed also by Massimiliano Pagliara, of Ostgut fame. Opal Sunn is live-performance duo Al Kassian & Hiroaki OBA.
Formed in 2015, the pair have recorded countless hardware-driven improvisational sessions, puzzled together to create abstract musical journeys.
The aim is to transcend the improvisational magic of the studio jam and funnel it into the live performance.
Having played at Rainbow Disco Club 2016 in Japan & Atlas Electronic 2016 in Morocco,the pair took both excited audiences by surprise with their heavily improvised live sessions.
