Yellow6, Loops, Notes and Sketches [solo guitar] [October Man Recordings – OCTOBER MAN 16, 2006]

October 18th, 2006

yellow6_loops_notesGentle sounds of treated guitar in all its various forms, the title “Loops, Notes and Sketches [solo guitar]” says it all really, the reason being that Yellow6’s 11 track OMR release is precisely that. And so would his entire musical output seem to be, not that I’ve had the opportunity to hear more than a fraction of his fairly extensive output of guitar, looper pedal and an array of reverbs and tremolo. He has indirectly been featured before here at Electronic Desert for his contributions to Bauri’s “Cold Mittens” on the “Everything Will Be OK Again” EP released by the lovely New Speak label in 2003. And could very well have been featured a second time if the time would ever appear to write something about “Annexe: Cottage Industries 2” a compilation released by the now sadly debunked Neo Ouija label. The conclusion must be that the carefully constructed guitar soundscape are as beautiful as they are fragile and more than well deserves your attention. On a different note: the observant may also notice that the OMR release sequence has reached number 16 and that is three numbers short of the previous outing by Alkin Engineering. So while the 100 copies “Loops, Notes and Sketches [solo guitar]” are being sold out, you have two more October Man Recordings’ treats to look forward to.
