Sounds And Moving Pictures
Yellow6, the solo project of British guitarist Jon Attwood, has been releasing music, variously categorised as drone, post-rock, space-rock, minimalist, shoegaze and ambient since 1998. With a body of work totalling over 110 individual releases, Sounds and Moving Pictures is the first CD/DVD release from this prolific artist. Sounds [compact disc]: The CD features the audio recording, here mixed from the audience and video sources. The 30 minute live set features three songs: 00:30, Plane Ari and Norwest Passage. The remainder of the CD features audience recordings from all of the dates on the tour (Wanquetin, Lille, Antwerp, Paris, Liege). These have been manipulated into 6 parts across 40 minutes by David Newlyn, a well respected artist in his own right, who has collaborated with Yellow6 previously (Minatures, Hibernate Recordings) and runs the Cathedral Transmissions label. Moving Pictures [digital versatile disc]: The Live Looping video is the main feature of the DVD. Also on the DVD is the film Drifting by Elenziah film used as a back projection at some Yellow6 shows, here with two menu selectable improvised soundtracks; a trailer for 9732 (Elenziah) featuring music by Yellow6, a video for Realisation (by Badhad Film / Front&Follow) from the Yellow6 album Painted Sky, and a tour photo slide show.
