from the sleeve notes:

about the journey….
we each have two things in common - we’re born and we die. what happens between those two events is entirely personal and unique. rather than race blindly towards the finish line, look around as you pass by, enjoy the scenery, experience everything. life is not about the destination, it’s about the journey

The CD will be available from the Sound In Silence Bandcamp page:

the clock is ticking

the clock is ticking on the new Yellow6 release "a journey home" - a limited 10" clear lathe cut release on Champion Version.
This will only be available as a pre-order or digital download from the Champion Version Bandcamp page:
what the label has to say:
Description: Using his guitar, a looping device and a chain of effects pedals, Yellow6 records the basis of the music here in a single live take and then edits and builds on the original improvisations to create a constantly moving ambient soundscape. The enigmatic and transcendent incantations of 'A Journey Home' open the release with Atwood beautifully layering a multitude of shimmering and blissful guitar treatments. On the B side comes the quietly cinematic 'The First Day (Version 2)' where gently plucked guitars thread loosely together in the most tender fashion while soft tone clusters lay out a stunning backdrop. An epic and immersive record.

What I have to say: 
both pieces were recorded April 2017.  A Journey Home was recorded in a single take the day after the initial idea, with minimal overdubs added the following day.  The First Day (version 2) has been gestating for a while in it's various forms.  Originally as the ending to the full piece The First Day, it has been played live a few times in 2017 (including the version available on the Silent Strategies live recording available from the Yellow6 Bandcamp page).  The original version has been recorded, along with Part 1, for the forthcoming CD album on Sound In Silence, but this version, recorded just after the Silent Strategies live show took a totally different direction.  Separated from it's first part, and edited to just under 10 minutes, this is the second dise of the record.

Get in quick if you want a copy as there will be no re-press.

for those in the Nottingham area, I make a return to the Church of Sound at Lee Rosy's on Thursday 20th, with Monkey Trial and The Garwin Project
FB event:
The set for this will be a mix of old and new, with the return of CUT to the live set

that's all for now
thanks for listening
