"[Leanna’s] skill in creating what the director wants for the film is evident. It has a real life feel to it. You can feel the tones in your bones. It sounds like fear… It’s a real privilege to listen to the creative work that Leanna brings into our reality. Seeing her talent shine in singles like “Sounds Like FEAR” is why we enjoy sharing her work.”- PopHorror
"Anasia5Mice is an amazing extended play... [She has a]distinct ability to tell a story through innovative frequencies is something rare in modern music and her artistic abilities are a creative gift given to her from a higher essence of being that she taps into so eloquently. There [is]... a significant amount of depth and versatility to the mixes that is unprecedented for indie artists. Anasia seems to have an important movement of music that she wants share with the world!"-Paste Magazine
The highly-controversial, arthouse horror short, Sulphur for Leviathan, is both sinister and surreal. Directed by James Quinn (Flesh of the Void), the film’s edgy elegance and radical mixed-medium approach make it the perfect foil for the ambient experimental composer, ANASIA. The LA-based solo artist, composer and conductor is noted for making bold sonic statements. Friday December 13th, ANASIA issues her riveting re- imagining of the soundtrack she wrote for Sulphur for Leviathan with the adventurous 4-song EP, Blurred. BLURRED is part of that EP.
ANASIA’s 14-minute opus takes a “variations on a theme” approach using the movie’s musical motifs as creative fodder for her compositional mind. The movie Sulphur for Leviathan has been visually sculpted to achieve a sensory disorienting experience to heighten the film’s deliciously depraved narrative arc. ANASIA’S Blurred mirrors this effect through her treatment of sound, as if the track itself is breathing.
Within this detailed sonic thicket, select sounds for the building blocks of her interpretive work were modified in a variety of ways. Passages are played backward; jarringly cut short or dramatically elongated; subjected to echo-chamber effects; and varied in pitch and intensity. This coming together of varied auditory experiences cohesively gels into an invigorating and disquieting auditory experience.
When not working under the moniker ANASIA, Leanna Primiani is an established composer who has scored numerous features, TV shows, and orchestral concert works. She has composed the scores for such award- winning films as Daughters of Virtue, A Film By Vera Vaughn, and the remake of the cult classic, The Bad Seed, directed by and starring Rob Lowe. Her music has also been performed by The Nashville Symphony, Seattle Collaborative Orchestra, The Aspen Music Festival, and has conducted such orchestras as The National Symphony, Dallas Opera Orchestra, California Opera among many others.
