Intended to get a posthumous fame, Yellowhead makes music, produces videoart, occasionally performs at different places, and so on.
The main idea behind the Yellowhead’s works is the game in a general sense. An entertainment, a process with no pretension for revelation, a pure joy from sounds, pixels and symbols. Yes, this music is not always easy-going, but it is arrogance-free and clear of high-browed concepts.
Yellowhead says that his audience consists of people who love to dance and zeugma. He prefers to play at museums, cinema theatres and rarely.
Listen to some music by Yellowhead:
Listen more: albums
An addition to the regular life-wasting process a bundle of wasteworthy bass roaring, mid-range rustling and treble chirping.
A bunch of audible mutants, conjured up by a man who loves to have fun with random sounds of various origins. Their shapes are eccentric. Their edges are crooked.
Household sounds and casual conversations are combined with electronic synthesizers, beats and other things for the purpose of reaching new odd outlandish spaces.
An imaginary dancefloor of Yellowhead where scientists and clubbers are dancing together to a pseudo-stupid, pseudo-monotonic pseudo-thrasher unza-unza.
A kindergarten party with sweet porridge, games and toys which is thrown by Yellowhead with the assistance of his fellow colleagues: Few, Zimmer-G and Moonscape.
Listen even more: collaborations and compilations
Indifferent ListeningA conceptual collective album which reflects on contemporary habits of music perceiving and winks at its own predecessors.
Ideas for Pop Producers to StealOur favorite type of music is the mind-infused and thought-provoking one. We are not saying that this is relevant here, but
Oh, wait. We are.
Daydreaming and SleepwalkingA suitable accompaniment for dreams of different sorts, whether lucid or subliminal, empty or pragmatic, sweet or salty, trivial or peculiar.
Halfway BitterFrom melancholy to joyfulness and back. From melodic depths to rhythmic curiosities. A collective effort resulting in engaging selection of music tracks.
Music for EukaryotesA compilation that both you and your cat are able to enjoy. Along with a dog. And also a cactus. Perceive this selection of tracks from your very core!
Audio FilesMade under the influence of mass media, these tracks contain elements of ignorance, banality and stupidity. Failsafe sarcasm was added for the balance.
The Discreet Charm of ConsumerismThe result of using an inspirational source that is seemingly uninspiring the music made about supermarkets and related things.
Marginal Stuff for Genuine DorksA fine selection of good tunes, released under the title of an imaginary world, in which 56 Stuff deems appropriate to use some business marketing tools.
FoldoutA compound music composition, varying in tempo, tone, mood, genre and sound. Made by 18 artists via the method Cadavre exquis de la musique.
UncategorizedA variegated compilation made with utter contempt for all the kinds of categorization. The style is whatever, the music is good.
Not So Easy. Less Quiet.A compilation-antonym to our previously released Easy. Slow. Quiet. This one couldn’t be called calming. It’s better to call it
well, not so calming.
Easy. Slow. Quiet.An asymmetrical response to the bustle and noise of everyday life, lousy weather and bad moods.
7×8. 56 Stuff Remixes ItselfA number of original tracks by various artists shuffled with remixes which participants did for each other.
Music Take-AwayThis compilation was created for the events series of the same name, where it was available for free. You can also download it for free right now, yes.
Different Listening 3Continuing and summarizing the approach of the whole series: it’s pleasant to the ears, but at the same time it can be surprising for the mind.
Past PerfectTen selected tracks from everything published by 56 Stuff from 2002 to 2004. By the way, available for free.
Different Listening 2A compilation of light electronic music that tries to be more than just a compilation of light electronic music.
The Girl and the MushroomsA collaborative project that gives to the short child story by Russian classic Tolstoy a chance to make a movement in a radically unexpected direction.
Different ListeningA compounding mixture of tunes that started the events and compilations series and became, for us, significant, epochal, legendary and sort of.
