Sonic Youth release SYR6 - the next phase
of the legendary SYR series

Sonic Youth have released their 6th installment to the legendary SYR series — and it's titled SYR 6 Koncertinas Stan Brakhage Prisiminimui.

The album is a recording of Sonic Youth's live set at a benefit show for The Anthology Film Archives in 2003. That show was a benefit for avant-garde filmaker Stan Brakhage, to help his family cover medical costs before his death. SY performed with drummer/percussionist Tim Barnes.

Stan Brakhage was one of the most important and revolutionary filmakers of the avant-garde genre, making hundreds of films that explored themes like the relationship between dream worlds and reality.

On that night in 2003, Sonic Youth played an "intimate, predominantly instrumental chamber concert" with Brakhage films playing during the show. This time around, proceeds from the CD will go in part to The Anthology Film Archives. The album also comes with a random SY item such as a sticker, backstage pass, show ticket or similar artifact.
