in circles / merry6mas2015 #17 in an ongoing series
written and recorded during 2015, some of this music came about
during rehearsals for the 2 live shows of the year, some didn’t
make the final cut of No Memories, Only Photographs, and others
were written as time became short and i needed material for this
and was avoiding using a live recording as last year.
All are, as ever, presented here lacking some of the final polish
some may expect, but this is the polish that, in reality, no
Yellow6 release has ever had. Because i record part improvised
there will always be the odd note that isn’t quite right or the
click of an effect pedal, but i feel these are the things that
make it more human (of course the big errors are deleted).
Aside from a couple of drum loops, each song was recorded as
a single multi-track take. There’s a few overdubs of bass and
drum beats but that’s all.
As this is mostly loop based music, there is usually a starting
loop as the foundation on which the other layers are built. At
some time this loop will disappear and be replaced by others.
The thing i like when listening back as i don’t always notice
when these things start and stop straight away as other layers
come to the fore. I hope you will also find that in the
shifting collection of loops and drones that make up the music.

Yellow6 is the solo project of British guitarist Jon Attwood. Yellow6 has at times been described as post-rock, minimalist, electronica, ambient… the reality is that Yellow6 has some similarity with each of those genres but is not so easily definable, using aspects of drone, repetition, melody, harmony, noise and silence to create absorbing soundscapes to drift off into ... more
