about

For a number of years, i've been interested in different ways to compose and produce music, trying to avoid falling into habits (which i have - it's hard not to). i tried a random approach of loops of different lengths (13 Loops), drone, live multi-track looping. A couple of my favourite artists got me interested in a different approach. Inspired by some work by Low, and recent Nick Cave and Warren Ellis music, i decided to try using backing loop, but not as i would normally use. Instead of using arpeggiated guitars, piano or a rhythm, using more of a mix of sounds: drones, hums, reverse guitars, bowed strings, harmonics.... all overlayed with loops of guitars. Is it different from what i would normally do? i'm not sure but i like the result. The four tracks were recorded in a few days over the second week of March 2021.

This fills the gap before an upcoming busy time, with the forthcoming release of the collaboration album by JARR (myself and Ray Robinson aka Wodwo) on Hush Hush (sample track here on a compilation from Mailbox: mailbox-label.bandcamp.com/track/jarr-an-echo-in-her-skin) and the first Yellow6 vinyl release in over 10 years from Somewherecold (swcyellow6.bandcamp.com/album/for-the-first-and-last) - available now for pre-order.

this one is free to stream/download. hope you enjoy it and please share with your friends

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
